International Grant Professionals Day (IGPD) is March 8, 2019

IGPD is the annual celebration to recognize and show appreciation to all grant professionals. Take time to celebrate the administrators, consultants, managers, grant-makers and grant proposal developers for their beneficial contributions to people, government agencies and nonprofit organizations. IGPD is about honoring grant seekers, grant makers, and grant project managers. IGPD increases awareness internationally of the work grant professionals perform. Events planned for this day encourage grant professionals and their organizations to celebrate themselves, the profession and highlight important issues faced by grant professionals.
