The annual operating budget is prepared by the Budget and Finance Subcommittee, with input and requests for funding from other members of the MTF committee. The proposed budget is discussed and reviewed at an MTF Executive Committee meeting held at the beginning of the Annual Meeting. The total budget amount from USATF is usually known just before the Annual Meeting. And, if time permits, a detailed MTF budget will be prepared for approval by the MTF Committee.
Revenue to cover MTF expenses comes from three sources:
- Funds that are provided by USATF
- Other revenue that MTF may raise from various sources.
- Donations which may be for general or specific purposes.
