Learn How to Avoid Pitfalls while Implementing Your Grant Budget

You won the grant, your community is thrilled—and so are you. Great job! The important work of grant and budget management begins now: advertising new positions, setting up new accounts, assuring proper budgetary expenditures, monitoring implementation and outcomes, and so on. But as the grant professional responsible for properly stewarding this award, have you considered the risks of each of these tasks?

Learn how to avoid jeopardizing your current and future funding due to mismanagement of grant awards in this webinar by certified grants professional Cyndi MacKenzie. Mackenzie will provide realistic examples of federal, state, and foundation grant and budgetary management from years of experience with small and large non-profit organizations. She will tell you when ideally your grant and budget management should start, and provide the essential workflow—with the timelines and reasons clearly defined for every step. For example, she will explain why it’s important to set up a meeting ASAP after you are notified of the award, or when to contact your grant manager for staff changes, outcome problems. She will also show you how to establish systems of risk management, and the ethics involved in stewarding resources.

After attending this webinar, you will be aware of the nuances of grant and budget management. You will know how to allocate the funds judiciously and derive maximum value out of your grants. You will carry the knowledge and expertise gained in this webinar to your next grant application—and increase your chances of winning it again.
