Vision

Small nonprofits can compete, create content, and have influence that rivals the Microsofts and Coca Colas of the world.

Mission

Boss on a Budget's mission is to teach small nonprofits the skills they need to live out their dreams and launch successfully in their first year.

Founder, Tiffany Allen

photo of Tiffany AllenI created Boss on a Budget™ in 2016 to combine two loves: teaching and community. Struck by the lack of a strong nonprofit network in my hometown, I want to create a grassroots effort to build the capacity of local nonprofits. I’ve grown tired of seeing deserving nonprofits struggle to scale their programs in a meaningful way, so Boss on a Budget was created to bridge the gap. Over the past 12 years, I’ve worked in the nonprofit sector with expertise in data & evaluation, grant writing and strategic planning. Fueled by my love for the community, I hope to build up local organizations to inspire the next generation to be the change they seek.
