Discussion: Budget, Budget Narrative, and Sustainability Plan
This Discussion will be available from Day 1 through Day 7 of this week. You are required to submit your initial post by
Day 3. You are encouraged to post early. Once you have submitted your initial post, start responding to your colleagues. You must begin responding to your colleagues by no later than
Day 5 and should continue to interact frequently with your colleagues through
Day 7. Part of what makes a discussion a discussion and not a lecture is the back-and-forth, in-depth, animated interaction of at least two people. If you start a topic and none of your peers are responding to your post, consider what you can do to get the conversation going. Include something that would elicit further thoughts and different opinions from peers. Validate your opinions with references and links to the sources you used so that your peers can read them for themselves. See your Discussion Rubric in the Course Information Tab for specific grading requirements.
The budget is a crucial piece in the logical progression of developing your proposal. Look back at the other key components: need statement, objectives, goals, methodology, and evaluation and consider how all of these pieces must be represented in and supported by the budget. One can see why a funding reviewer might begin by looking at a budget. It should fully, clearly, and succinctly depict the story of the project. The budget narrative expands upon the line items of a budget, offering further explanation of costs and needs as appropriate.A sustainability plan explains to funders how you will continue a project after funding has been exhausted. Not only does this plan demonstrate a proactive stance toward your project, but it also provides a funder assurance that its interests will be served beyond the project timeframe.In preparation for this Discussion, consider the components of your project that you have determined to this point. Review this week’s Learning Resources that focus on the budget, budget narrative, and sustainability plan.
By Day 3
Post your Budget, Budget Narrative, and Sustainability Plan. Include a brief description of your project to provide context to your colleagues.
