Webinar: Effective and Ethical Grant Management

Tuesday, June 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
Online Event



Grant management is a continuum directly related to grant readiness. It points to an organization's ability to follow through on what it said it would do, and follow established best practices for financial, data, and records management.  Join us to get an understanding of standard compliance elements, the roles and responsibilities needed to implement these compliance elements, and effective grant management practices. Strategies will include universal practices tailored to the size and complexity of the organization.
This program meets a number of items in GCPI Competency #5.  Click here for details.

A program of the Grant Writing Series.
