You just won a grant- hooray! After the excitement wears off, now you must manage the grant.
The truth is, grants are really hard to get but really, really easy to lose. Not having a reliable grant management plan and system in place ranks high on the list of why nonprofit organizations lose funding.
For our clients, we develop a grant management plan during the grant writing process. If you do not have a grant management plan in place, what will your strategy be to manage the grant?
An oversight such as a missed deadline, an incomplete or missing report, or an overlooked guideline can easily have your organization lose funding and be ineligible to apply for future funding.
Grant management is a challenge when you don’t have the organizational capacity through a robust and coordinated staff, is difficult to track across multiple organizations collaborating on a grant-funded project, and is tough to do when your team is busy trying to run a program and get new funding at the same time. There are only 24 hours in a day.
Don’t let grant management fall by the wayside.
