Maryn Boess, National Nonprofit Trainer & Consultant
Founder, GrantsUSA

What does it take to be a successful grantseeking organization? Success in grantsmanship involves much more than being able to write a good proposal. As an organization, you must also have the right culture, the right values, the right tools, and the right resources in place to support your grantseeking process and manage your grant-funded programs and services well on behalf of your funder and the community you serve.

In this session, you’ll learn how to lay the groundwork for effective grantsmanship in both your organization’s culture and its practices. You will:

  • Understand the importance of mission-driven grantsmanship
  • Be able to identify your organization’s needs and resources to support a systematic and strategic grantseeking process
  • Have a framework for developing and strengthening financial and program accountability
  • Know the resources and practices necessary to position your organization for grants readiness

For this session, you’ll be introduced to GrantsUSA’s exclusive Grants Readiness Assessment checklist—a detailed tool to help you identify what vital grants-readiness resources and practices are already working well in your organization, and where changes and improvements need to be made in order to make sure your organization is truly “grants ready.”
