After the Award: A Grant Kickoff Process for Fewer Headaches and Happier Funders
Is your organization’s project performance hindering grant renewals?  Learn how to lead a one-hour internal kickoff meeting for a smooth transition from grant award to project execution.  The grant kickoff meeting brings together project leadership with staff from finance, development, and communications to develop a shared understanding of the grant’s purpose and desired outcomes.  This session will describe a detailed agenda and key issues for the grant kickoff meeting to include staff roles, deliverables, metrics, budget, and reporting requirements.  We will also discuss communications strategies to keep your funder engaged, informed, and happy throughout grant term.  The grant kickoff process can identify problems before they escalate and moderate the affect of staff transitions during the project.  Suggestions will be provided for integrating the grant kickoff meeting into your workplan and overcoming objections to the process.  You will learn seven tips for developing standardized systems that can reduce your kickoff meeting to just 30 minutes!  Ultimately, the grant kickoff process helps you meet one of your most important goals—renewed funding from foundation and corporate donors.

Building Better Proposal Budgets
Don’t let a bad budget undermine a great proposal.  When reviewing proposals, grantmakers often look at the budget first.  Many fall short, according to the Foundation Center.  Make sure your budget doesn’t cost you the competition. 
In this session, you will learn:
  • What questions to ask program and financial staff to accurately budget and justify costs
  • How to ensure your proposal budget aligns with the proposal narrative
  • Why grantmakers view budgets equally as important as proposal narrative.
  • How grantmakers view the relationship between project and operating budget
  • How to determine the appropriate grant amount to reques
  • How inadequate or poorly planned budgets can hurt your organization even if the proposal is funded
