Cashflow Template for Grant Applicants

What is a Cashflow?

A cashflow is a financial statement that shows how money moves in and out of your organization over a specific period, usually monthly or annually. It helps you understand the sources and uses of cash, enabling better financial planning and management.

Why is it Important for Grant Applicants?

Granting organizations often require a clear understanding of an applicant’s financial situation. A well-prepared cashflow can provide valuable insights into your organization’s financial health and how you intend to utilize the grant funds.

This can be used if you are a new organization and do not have a full set of accounts.
