Do you know what it costs to deliver your programs?

An understanding of true program costs is essential for management decisions, program design, and effective development work. This workshop will help you allocate expenses, build realistic program budgets, and communicate what your work actually costs. You will learn to identify direct and indirect expenses using real life examples, and then review different methods of allocating these costs to programs. Afterwards you will be able to assess which programs are fully funded and which are subsidized, information that will help you manage a sustainable organization.
