Event Date: 11.19.2020
As cultural organizations work to sustain their critical role in their communities through turbulent times, collecting and analyzing financial data is more important than ever to help you weather the storm and prepare for a successful future. We know that many arts leaders take on their roles with great passion for their organizations’ missions, but limited knowledge of the basics of the financial management. This Building Blocks series hosted by Mass Cultural Council and SMU DataArts attempts to fill in the gaps in your financial knowledge, one piece at a time.
In this session, we will explore the annual budget process: why budgeting is critical, and how to use a budget template, create different types of budgets for different audiences, and monitor your budget throughout the year. All are welcome, but this session is especially geared toward smaller organizations and arts managers with little financial knowledge and experience, and will include time for questions about budgeting and other financial topics. This workshop is open to any cultural nonprofit in Massachusetts and is free of charge.
Captioning is available upon request. If you have additional questions or access requests, please contact Michael Ibrahim.
