Grant reviewers often look at a grant budget before they ever read the beautiful words you took hours to write. Are your attachments helping you get the grant or making it easy for a funder to say “no?”
In this webinar with Megan Ferry, Consultant, Nonprofit Navigators, we learn about standard grant attachments and what funders are looking for with each type, including specifics on budgets, audits, major funder lists, key personnel, and board lists.
Definitions for and best practices of standard attachments that funders expect (organization budgets, program budgets, year-to-date financials, audits, etc.)
Best practices for when attachments need to be updated and how to get the attachments you need from fellow staff members and partner agencies
When and what to include when a funder gives you the opportunity to attach “optional” items
The latest trends in attachments—what funders are looking for now and what you need to be working with board and staff to create today to write a grant in six months
