Unite for Youth will build funding support from businesses and private donors in the community at an aggressive rate of growth. Yet it will take five years before funding from these sources becomes strong enough to expand the program. The primary expenditures for the program are for the training and managing of mentors and the program activities for youth and mentors. Therefore it is essential that due diligence is applied to fund allocation for these critical program responsibilities. An effective communication system will be established to report fiscal data to the Board of Directors so adjustment can be made quickly to assure the health of the program.
We are also assuming beginning cash reserves on October 1st of $71,500 according to the treasurer.
