Building a Grant Calendar

True grant management is more than just submitting proposals. While the story you tell and how well you tell it are important, there are so many other elements you must juggle that determine whether your request is funded or rejected. With deadlines and requirements different with each potential funding opportunity, planning and organization are critical. The most effective way to manage the many details of grants is with a grant calendar. But what do you need to track? How much time do you need? What do you do when so many deadlines are at the same time?


In this webinar, we’ll cover:

  • Researching and identifying grant opportunities
  • Reading RFPs and foundation websites to gather key elements of the submission process
  • 5 questions you should ask a grant administrator while planning
  • What information you should be tracking for long-term success
  • Organizing your funding needs
  • Building a calendar that complements your existing fundraising strategy
  • An example of a working and flexible grant calendar
  • The secret to drafting successful grant templates that save time and allow you to submit more requests
