So You Won a Grant. . . Now the Grant Management Begins!

Winning a grant is only the first step. In this two-day grant management workshop you’ll get the skills and know-how to keep your project on track, comply with grant regulations, and protect your organization from the administrative and legal chaos that results from poor grants management.

In this training you learn how to:

  • Protect your organization from bad audits, disallowed costs, and lost funder confidence
  • Build funder relationships that contribute to future grant awards
  • Organize requirements for solid grants management
  • Establish roles and responsibilities for your nonprofit grant management team
  • Handle pre-award activities that will set your program on the right track
  • Oversee post-award start-up, operation, and closeout duties
  • Ensure compliance with funder requirements
  • Address the critical aspects of managing grant finances
  • Understand the ins and outs of procurement and the disposition of property
  • Manage indirect costs.

All of this — in only two days! 


Not Your Typical Seminar

Grant Management Essentials uses the Listen & Discuss, Do & Review® curriculum — the most effective approach for adult learners. Beyond just presentation and discussion, participate in hands-on grant management exercises and review your work in class to learn the most current, practical information in the field.

You leave the training with acess to an amazing e-notebook of resources, including customizable templates, a network of colleagues to contact, and six months of follow-up support from the Center via our Membership Program.

As a graduate of Grant Management Essentials you receive our Alumni Membership for six months. This helps you:

  • Find funders through GrantStation, a database of foundation, corporate, and federal grantmakers
  • Upgrade your own skills with tuition discounts on other training programs, publications, and consulting services
  • Find the answers you need. Ask The Center!
