Assignment Advisory: You must use the latest desktop version of Excel for Microsoft 365 for this assigment. (This is provided free by GCU; contact the Help Desk for more information and help installing the software.) Using an earlier version of Excel or a different spreadsheet program may result in missing or corrupted template elements. Copying cells from or into this template may likewise result in corrupted data.

Legend
2a Below, you will develop a budget for your project, including entries for personnel costs (for yourself, other paid individuals, legal or consulting services, etc.); administrative costs (rents, fees, utilities, insurance, IT costs, office supplies, travel, etc.); outreach costs (advertising, recruitment, fundraising, etc.); and program costs (supplies for use in assistance, cash distributions, payments for direct services to recipients, etc.). You must enter at least 8 budget items in all. Each category must have at least one budget item. For at least 3 budget items, your expense quantity must be greater than one. Format all costs as Currency with 2 decimal places. To start, modify the cost of your time as appropriate.

2b Here, use Excel formulas to transfer the subtotals and total from your budget into this table, and then calculate the percentage of the budget total represented by each category. Format the costs as Currency with two decimal places and the percentages as Percentage with one decimal place.

Budget Cost Projection

3a Below, you will generate a 5-year projected cost for your budget, starting with your budget total. You will base your projection on CPI values that you look up. Use this procedure to look up the CPI value: 1. Go to Bureau of Labor Statistics page link https://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/surveymost?cu 2. Check the box to the left of text “U.S. city average, All items – CUUR0000SA0” 3. Press the “Retrieve Data” button at the bottom of the list. This should take you to a CPI table for about the last 10 years.First, fill in the CPI value for the given month and year. Then, fill in the CPI values for the next 6 years, advancing exactly one year for each value. For example, if you start in February 2011, your next CPI value will come from February 2012. Format your CPI values as Numbers with 3 decimals of precision.

3c Finally, project the CPI forward an additional 5 years using your slope and intercept; calculate the 5-year inflation rate from your year 6 CPI value and the calculated value; and apply the inflation rate to your budget total to find a 5-year budget projection.

4 On this sheet, you will consider how to cover the projected cost of your Project Budget. In particular, you will calculate the 5-year balance for a percentage of your projected cost assumed to be invested at a given interest rate with annual compounding; the 5-year balance for a given monthly donation amount invested at a second interest rate; and a monthly loan payment required for a 5-year loan to cover the remainder of your 5-year projected cost, using a third interest rate.Start by looking up rates to use as APRs in the following historical table of 30-year fixed mortgage rates: http://www.freddiemac.com/pmms/pmms30.html

Enter these items as percentages or decimals; for example, a value of 4.03 in the table would be entered here as 4.03% or 0.0403. Also format each rate as a Percentage with 2 decimal places.

5 Now, perform each of the calculations indicated. Please refer to the financial formulas section of the instructions for Major Assignment 3, where you will find the equations for the Compound Interest Formula, Future Value of Periodic Payments Formula, and Loan Payment Formula to use for the final calculation in the Sponsorship, Fundraising, and Loan Payment sections below, respectively. Important Note: for these calculations, you MUST use direct calculation formulas, and you MAY NOT use built-in Excel functions to calculate these values.Format all amounts (in the gold-shaded cells) as Currency with the $ symbol and 2 decimal places, and all n and t entries (in the green-shaded cells) as Number with 0 decimals.
