Please review sample budget for reference, and remember the following tips when completing your own:
- Your budget should include all projected expenses and any anticipated income (such as other grants, ticket or merchandise sales, etc).
- List any in-kind contributions, including donated materials, equipment, venue, and/or volunteered time.
- Make sure your expenses and income balance—total expenses must equal total income.
- Be realistic and specific—research costs to avoid overstating or underestimating expenses.
- We know budgets can be scary. SHOW NO FEAR! YOU CAN DO IT!
