  • Project Budget

  • In order to be sure that we understand why there is a need for funding, the applicant should prepare a line by‐line list of expenses that will be generated by this project. The budget should be prepared in a logical manner and offer enough detail that a reviewer will be able to understand exactly what the figures mean and how that figure was determined. All budget items must be realistic and calculated in USD. The budget explanation should follow the actual budget presentation itself and describe in some detail the costs presented in the budget. In other words, it explains, line by line, what the numbers mean and how they were determined. For example, “Travel: $3,000.” Explanation: Two‐day conference in (location) for 30 participants with a 2X$50 travel allowance to each participant for room, board and transportation costs.If the proposal seeks funding to purchase a service or equipment, the application must include three pro-forma estimates from the service or equipment vendor. Simply listing “Computer and printer: $4,000″ is not sufficient. Please describe the in‐kind contribution of your organization ‐ it can be voluntary work, use of premises, vehicles, classroom supplies, equipment or payment of a program event from your own funds (e.g. rental of a hall, printing of announcements, meals, travel, etc.).
  • Please state which other organizations you have applied to for funding with the same project, and the status of those applications, including the possibilities for co‐funding of the project by other organizations.
