Getting the most out of the Grant Audit Workshop
It’s been so great being back from a relaxing holiday break! I love this time of year because it not only means time with family, it also is a time to reflect and get energized for the year ahead.
As I’m planning out my workshop for the month ahead, I figured for those that are starting with me, and even those that are interested, I’d put together a short list of what you can start thinking of to make the most of the Grant Audit Workshop:
What is your area of greatest need:
For grant-writing strength?
How does your need statement look right now? What are you doing to evaluate the efficacy of your programs?
For your organization itself?
What is preventing you from growing? Where are you spending the most money?
What is that need that you have the hardest time getting funders to understand?
For one of my clients, it was literally conveying that these girls in a low-income area needed shoes to participate in an athletic after-school program. Operating costs, placed in a greater context of understanding can get funded!
What are the big goals you have in 2019 that you need to pin down action steps for?
In my two 30 minute calls, I can share my expertise as it relates to grant writing in all of these goals, we can take your end goal and break it down into a budget, action steps and areas of opportunity you can work on in the upcoming year to better position yourself for grant funding.
Lastly, consider a bulleted list. As you go throughout your week, think of some questions and areas you really need help in. I’ve been in fundraising before, on a board, working for a nonprofit. Even if you want to bounce some ideas around as they relate to grant writing, I am here for you!
I can’t wait to get started on helping all my clients reaching their goals in the upcoming year, and can’t wait to see what funding we can get for you!
