This topic helps nonprofit managers understand budgets from a different process that allows the nonprofit to gain independence with diversified revenues, innovate ways to save on budgets, and above all else prioritize people and mission over spending and controls. The strategies presented in this material will help nonprofits build reserves and better plan for the future.
