The Business of Grant Writing

Tuesday, April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm • Organized By Nonprofit Connect
Online Event


Grant managers know that the process of writing and budgeting a grant is just as nuanced and detailed as coming up with a solid business plan. You must carefully match your activities to both outcomes and expenses. Fortunately, there are practices that can help you bridge the gap between finance and implementation for your grant.

Join Jasmine Markanday, certified Grants Management Specialist and President/Owner of PKS Grant Management & Accounting Solutions, LLC, to take a fresh look at how you manage the business of grants in your organization.

In this webinar you'll learn:

  • The importance of collaboration between the finance team, grant writing team, and program implementation team;
  • Effective grant implementation strategies; and
  • How to manage grants with confidence based on federal regulations.
This session is ideal for grant writers, grant managers, or finance professionals who are responsible for overseeing the financial aspects of grant compliance.
This is a program of the Grant Writing Series.
