Where do RFP Budgets Come From?

Depending on the RFP, we confirm or estimate.

Premium RFPs have fully vetted budgets (the budget on the page is the budget available for the project) while free RFPs for the most part are estimates (though we do confirm their budgets sometimes). 
Free RFP budget estimates are based on similar-sized projects and publicly available budget documents like 990s. We also share all our estimates with organizations for them to push back and have found we’re right about 80% of the time. Even though we’re often right, we always encourage you to check with issuers and offer the best proposal that makes the most sense.
