(Excel Sheet)

This template is designed to be a starting point for organizations who are looking to build a multi-year budget that incorporates grants.

We have provided you with three sheets, one offers recommended categories for inclusion and shows how you can use accounting codes to connect it to your accounting system. The second sheet allows you to track individual restricted sources to ensure you are not fundraising for areas that you already have funding coming in. The third is an example that is combined revenue and expense areas from several clients that operate emergency shelters for the homeless, domestic violence, or human trafficking.
