Our second episode with Patrina Pelton-Smith, the principal consultant with The Business of Charity. This time we talk about dotting the I’s and crossing the T’s when it comes to getting nonprofits prepared to properly engage in a grant-writing agenda:
- Getting procedurally clear on programs & services vs activities and events.
- Receiving the grant is when the hard work actually starts.
- Ensuring the organization has the right accounting infrastructure in place.
- Preparing required registrations & certifications (DUNS / SAM).
- Grant compliance issues.
