We are all “grant ready” as grant seeking organizations…ready to *want* grant revenue as part of the operating budget for the year. The real question is if your organization is “grant ready” to be a strong funding partner and grantee for each new potential grant maker you approach.
Even if you have a grant seeking strategy in place that you have been following, conducting an annual “check-up” of your grant readiness is key to ensure you maintain your competitiveness in your applications.
Presenter, Diane H. Leonard, has secured more than $33 million in competitive grant awards in the past ten years. Focusing on grant readiness in each organization for each grant is a key to the long-term grant seeking success experienced by her clients.
“How to Be Exceptionally Grant Ready: A Step-By-Step Guide” will provide you with your own strategy to apply to your organization to ensure that you begin the year with a strong grant seeking system in place. In this instant-acces webinar video, you will learn what policies, procedures, and practices you need to have in place in order to be grant ready for the upcoming year. You will also learn how to decide if your organization will be competitive in an application cycle so you can focus your organization’s energy and resources on those applications where you stand the strongest chance for success.
