VillageInfo:Food Hacking Base/Budget
This section should give you basic idea of how much finances we need for what, when and how do we plan to get it. We are independent project, what we need we need to rise up.
For the CCC camp we aim for €3000 to have ready before the event starts, which we call start up budget = €3000. This will be raised by Crowd Sourcing Campaign mostly. This sum will not most likely cover all spendings before the Day 0, day before the congress starts. We may be few hundreds in minus at the beginning of the event. We should be able to keep our spendings within €1000 during the event, that would be our operational budget = €1000. Our goal for rising up cash in donations is around €1500-2500 during the event, hoping to end up with around €1000 in plus after all packed, delivered to the final locations and all paid, €500 minimum, therefore surplus donations = €500-1000.
For more information please contact the food hacking base orga at admin at foodhackingbase.org or the treasurer Bigmac.
Here is a draft of the budget:
Budgeting for the event
|Budget title (€)||Amount of cash aimed for (€)||Received (€)||Still to get (€)|
|Start up budget||3000||400||2600|
Start up Budget We need money to rent, buy and set up what is necessary to make fhb happen and be ready for Day 0. Start up budget is exactly for this. We got over 400 EU from the previous event (31c3), therefore still €2600 to get. At least half of these funds, €1500, we should have ready latest by mid of July. The rest, €1500 should be gathered latest 10 days before the event or so. Main part of this budget will be covered by our Crowd Sourcing Campaign, the rest by personal donations. If necessary we may have to ask our group members or supporters for cash and return in during the event, however we should avoid that.
Operational Budget These are funds needed during the event from the Day 0 till Day 5 when the camp finishes, these spendings should be within €1000. They include our investments into food ingredients especially, but also things like garbage disposal if necessary, fuel for trips for shopping et cetera. We will get this money from donations during the event - our presentation venue, workshops, theme dinners, main party etc. We should get around €1500-2000 in donations during the event.
Surplus Donations At the end of this event, we will end up with some cash in our hand = surplus donations. We aim for €1000, €500 minimum. With aiming for €2000 collected, minus €1000 operational budget, €1000 in surplus donations should be doable This money will be used for fhb related activities after the event like delivering our gear to their homes, paying for our server, some projects of interests and of course for the next event.
Donations and expenses" during the event We will be monitoring again our spending&gains before, during and after the event, sharing the info hopefully in a close to real time fashion, Google doc may be used again as for 31c3. Dedicated person/s should be volunteering for this helping therefore to the treasurer. It would be amazing if we could have the finances closed by last day of the camp, at the evening or night knowing what is the the balance and start a new section "after the camp".
