Discussion Question Response3

Please look at the video and answer the questions in you own words

Review the number of events that are possible fundraisers and then practice developing a budget. Go to page 251-252 in Effective Fundraising and do the Projected Special Event Expenses Worksheet #6. You can begin to see how much is involved in creating a budget.

Then try to do the Projected Special Event Income Worksheet #7 on page 253.  Notice how the revenue sheet is smaller than the expenses. This is because you will always have more individual items in your budget and probably only a few funding sources. Consider creating your calendar of activities.

When you are finished with the exercise go to the discussion board to answer your question this week.

Read Chapters 8 and 9 and watch the video. Then answer the following questions in at least 250 words each. . Put the post in your own words.
