Each year the Grant Professionals Association (GPA) holds International Grant Professionals Day. It is an annual celebration to recognize and show appreciation to all grant professionals. GPLH is happy to share this news and pay tribute to our hardworking and dedicated members.
This year, the seventh annual International Grant Professionals Day will take place on Friday, March 12. The goal is to increase international awareness of the work grant professionals perform, while celebrating the work of grant professionals who serve as administrators, consultants, managers, grant-makers and writers.
Events planned for this day encourage grant professionals and their organizations to celebrate themselves, the profession and highlight important issues faced by grant professionals. Learn more about International Grant Professionals Day here.

Every day, grant professionals work diligently, usually behind the scenes, to seek grant opportunities, administer projects and implement important programs for the benefit of society’s disadvantaged and underserved people. These talented professionals are dedicated to providing the highest standard of ethics, quality program development, thoughtful project implementation and wise financial stewardship. Often, those standards extend beyond the financial to include capacity support, long term solutions to challenges, fundraising assistance, expert project management, sustainable programming, and more.
Grant Professionals Association is an international membership association for everyone in the grants industry. GPA and its affiliates work to advance the profession, certify professionals and fund professionalism. Learn more about the Grant Professionals Association (GPA) here.
