Budgeting Essentials online workshop

Budgeting Essentials online workshop


This online course introduces the key skills you need to write effective project and donor budgets. During the course you will create a set of project budgets and come away with practical skills that you can use immediately in your own work. 

Target Audience 

This course is suitable for anyone in the not-for-profit sector with responsibility for building or implementing project, program or organization-wide budgets.

This is an introductory-level course. Previous experience in budgeting is useful, but it is not a requirement to attend the course.

Key Takeaways 

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Complete an accurate, complete and justified project budget using the activity-based budgeting technique
  • Structure budgets in different donor formats to accompany funding proposals
  • Create phased budgets for program implementation
  • Describe how the Chart of Accounts is used in budgeting and budget management
  • Use a funding grid to manage multiple- donor funded programs.

Also see the Weekly Agenda within the dates and registration section for the topics covered.

Learning Approach 

Our training puts the learner at the center, using practical and fun learning activities, and easy-to-use materials. We share tools and techniques that can be immediately used in your work.

An eWorkshop is the online equivalent of being in a training room and learning together as a group, but stretched out over a few weeks. The learning resources include interactive lessons, readings, videos, individual and team tasks, and a practical course assignment. There are no ‘real time’ sessions so you can study at a time that suits you, within the set module weeks. The course requires a time commitment of around five to seven hours every week.
