Fundraising budget: should I include past in-kind expenses?
I'm looking for advice on how to write a budget for a grant.
Where I'm at: I'm writing my first budget for a full-length documentary. Research and production are completed, and I am currently editing the film. The funds I'm seeking are to complete post-production. All of the expenses so far have been in-kind (film that has not yet received any external funding).
My question: In submitting my budget to funders, should I include in-kind expenses already spent? Or should I only include items for which I currently need funding?
Any advice or links to other sources that help write budgets would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
