Abstract

This article presents a method for nonprofits to calculate a budgetary allocation which is consistent with their strategic goals. The method is based on the application of Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) to budgetary allocation. A proposed index, which is based on a comparison between the calculated budgetary allocation and the actual one, can help nonprofits to determine the level of fit between their goals and their budgetary priorities.

This article is now part of my new book: Measuring the things that count: Quantitative methods for the management of nonprofits. LAP Lambert Academic Publishing (January 25, 2010).

Keywords: budgetary allocation, nonprofit, decision making, strategic goals
