Product Description

From the Back Cover

Take control of your organization’s short- and long-term financial plan

The trend toward decentralizing decision-making powers in not-for-profit organizations means a greater number of employees are responsible for creating and managing the annual budget. Budgets, therefore, must be well designed, easy to implement, and accessible to professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Wishful thinking? Not any more. Continuous budgeting, as explained in Edward McMillan’s trenchant Not-for-Profit Budgeting and Financial Management, offers a system that is not only easy to use and monitor, but also ensures true fiscal accountability in the complex not-for-profit arena.

Continuous budgeting breaks down time-consuming annual budgeting processes into twelve easy-to-manage increments that produce more accurate and effective resource allocation. In this handy guide, the author explains how to:

  • Separate controllable, semi-controllable, and fixed expenses
  • Take corrective actions during the year to offset budget shortfalls
  • Define the roles of the CEO, CFO, the staff, and volunteer leaders
  • Establish expense reduction plans before they are needed
  • Prepare and present such top-notch budget documents that budgets will be approved the first time

McMillan writes in a nontechnical, understandable, how-to language and format, incorporating dozens of relevant forms and documents. This completely revised and expanded edition also includes all-new material on long-term financial planning, so that not-for-profits can work toward liberating themselves from the year-to-year scramble for increasingly scarce resources.

Not-for-profit managers must be able to direct and control their resource allocation rather than be controlled by outdated, cumbersome, and inaccurate budgeting processes. Not-for-Profit Budgeting and Financial Management, and its powerful system of continuous budgeting, enables all not-for-profit professionals to create and manage reasonable financial plans that fit their organization’s needs.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of money! Nov. 15 2011
By Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I read the entire book in less than one hour and I did not gain a single thing from it. It gives a very broad idea of budgeting and financial management for not-for-profits.
2.0 out of 5 stars Lousy proofreading mars this volume May 18 2013
By Joyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The proofreading done on the 4th edition was extremely poor. Not only are there errors in the text, but several of the exhibits are mislabeled with figures placed in the wrong columns so the column totals are off. I am very disappointed.

One thing I do like is the example of a Sample Consolidated Statement of Activity. It manages to show a wealth of information about the current month compared to prior year and to current budget with variance plus the same for year to date figures. I'm going to use this format for my next finance committee meeting.

I'm about halfway through reading this book and expect to get more useful information, but I wish the publisher had done a better job with editing and proofreading. Were I the author, I'd be very embarrassed.
