Have you ever struggled to develop a grant budget that helps the competitiveness of your application while also serving your organization’s programmatic and financial needs? Have you ever wondered how much of your grant helps your organization’s bottom line? Or have you ever become confused by wonky terms like total employment cost, match, cost share, in-kind, overhead, or indirect cost? If any of the above is true, this webinar is for you.
Topics will include projects versus programs, cash versus in-kind, match/cost share, overhead and indirect costs, accounting for personnel and volunteer costs, aligning grant budgets with the applicant’s programmatic and financial needs, and calculating the net gain of the grant versus the applicant’s organizational operating budget.
