    Default Need some help please

    I need some help with:

    What percentage of your annual operating budget is derived from:
    Taxes, donations, fund drives, fee for service, other.

    Revenue
    Checking as of 1/1/08 7083.62
    Savings as of 1/1/08 5252.46
    Fee for service 21926.28
    Fundraising 0
    Membership drive 3190
    Donations 300
    Grants 4916.86
    Total 42669.22

    Expenses
    Supplies 8775.19
    Equipment 3340.86
    Vehicle Maintenance 647.95
    Insurance 1978
    Gas 1375.85
    Education 815.23
    Rent 3600
    Medic Assists 9967.85
    Call Reimbursements 1905
    Postage 230.91
    Total 32636.84

    Revenue LESS expenses 10032.38

    How do I do this? Also, the numbers are for 2008. In 2009, we had several fundraisers and raised ~2,000. Should I still put 0% for fund drives?

    They are asking for your incoming revenue. All revenue should fall into one of the catagories they list. Devide the the revenue for each catagory by the total revenue and that will give you the percentage for each one.

    Be sure and keep your worksheet so you can explain how you came up with your percentages. grant management is keeping almost everything

    Thanks! Is the annual operating budget your total expenses? I really wish I was an accountant right now. This is like a different language to me.

    Annual operating budget means the money in & money out within the 12 month period. So your current bank account balances are not part of the scope of the operating budget since they are from prior budget cycles.

    So your revenue would be:
    Fee for service 21926.28
    Fundraising 0
    Membership drive 3190
    Donations 300
    Grants 4916.86
    Total 42669.22

    And unless that is a recurring grant every year that doesn't count either.
