Budget Overview Key points: Budgeting is a year round process Track all expenses throughout the year (Use of a Ledger…) Track all opportunities – Even though you didn’t take advantage of them (i.e. a missed tournament, a possible chance to get a speaker talk to your team, chance to get uniforms – Mostly due to low funding. Keep in mind when requesting money from SA, you will rarely get 100%. Do not be scared to aim higher – Just be able to justify what you need and why. Be prepared to work on budget before and during summer time. DO NOT WAIT UNTIL SCHOOL STARTS TO BEGIN THE PROCESS With proper budgeting, last minute fundraising or meeting for supplemental funds does not need to occur!
Why Use a Budget Planning (Short and Long Term) Purchases ○ Equipment ○ Marketing Materials Fees ○ League/Conference dues ○ Coaches/Instructors ○ Officials Travel ○ Transportation ○ Tournament Fees Organization Keep an up-to-date record of all income and expenditures
Goals and Needs VERY IMPORTANT to set GOALS when financial planning GOALS should be specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. (SMART) What are your needs for the year? For 5 years? Brainstorming – Create a list of all needs and wants
Goals and Needs - Examples Example – Needs and Wants: New Footballs (6), New Flag Belts (12), New Uniforms (18), University Bus for Travel to 1 Tournament, Conference Dues, Tournament Fees (3 Tournaments), and New Marketing Banner (1) Example – SMART GOALS: Our club will purchase 6 new footballs and 12 new flag belts in the Fall Semester with money we fundraised in summer 2011. Our club will request funds for 18 new uniforms and one marketing banner for FY13 in our SA budget meeting in Fall 2011.
