While Children’s Friend is getting ready for our Head Start children to come back to school and our Development Department is gearing up for our Investing in Our Children Luncheon and Spirit of Giving Holiday Drive events, the Finance Department is turning our focus to building our 2018 annual integrated agency budget.
The Finance Team will meet with program and department leaders over the next two months to craft a responsible, integrated budget that reflects the priorities of Children’s Friend: the children and families that we serve and our employees who perform the work.
Children’s Friend is fortunate to have an endowment that covers our administrative overhead and helps us fill the gaps when funding from programs falls short.
Children’s Friend is equally fortunate to have a loyal donor base that believes and invests in our work and supports us in our efforts. We cannot do this important work without the support of our community.
Thank you for all you do.
Our draft budget will be presented to our Senior Leadership Team where it will undergo final refinements before being presented to our Board. Once approved the agency has the blueprint for how we will operate in the coming year.
