Budgets! Does that word strike fear in your heart? Are you, like many other executive directors and department heads, a little (or a lot) over your head when it comes to finance?Many boards, especially those for small organizations, hire an executive director and expect that person to: know all the program issues; be a PR whiz; know fundraising inside and out; lobby like a pro; be an HR specialist with knowledge of payroll and benefits; and, in your spare time, be a competent accountant. Hey, no problem! Right? It's that time of year--time to get down to business and plan next calendar year's budget. If you're dreading the budget process, CommUlinks can help.
