PDF - T-Kit No. 9 - Funding and Financial Management

Finding a way through the labyrinth of funding has become yet another skill which volunteer and professional youth workers need to have. All too often youth workers are their own fund-raisers and are given little assistance by their boards of management.Ambitious plans often come with little financial provision except "Good luck with the fund-raising!" We hope the T-Kit will narrow that gap and provide a comprehensive overview of funding sources. It has been divided into two main parts, one on funding sources and one on financial management. A third part contains a glossary and recommendations for further reading, on both paper and the Internet. Throughout the text you will find hints on issues which we found relevant. Whenever possible, we also tried to find some good real-life examples of the issues discussed in the text.
