Speeding to a Crawl:
Keeping Pace With an Uncertain Grants Landscape

by Kevin Peters

In our current unprecedented reality, the world seems to be coming at us at different speeds. While the news about the COVID-19 pandemic keeps up a breathtaking pace—a neverending hum of facts, predictions, and hypotheticals—for many of us, our personal lives have slowed to a crawl. Almost as if our lives have been placed on hold. So many of the activities that make up our existence have been put on the backburner. Our lives will resume, but we don't know when. Nonprofit organizations are finding themselves in a similar situation. There are plenty of people who need help, and more with each passing day. But at the same time, many funders are pushing back their normal grant cycles. Fortunately, numerous sources are offering rapid response funds to help fill in the gap.

Building the "Total Value" Proposal Budget:
A Step-by-Step Framework (NEW)

Wednesday, May 6, 2020

An A+ proposal budget provides an honest, complete, and clear picture of the total value of everything it takes to do our work successfully. It also stands as an invaluable management and evaluation tool when it comes to running the grant-funded program. So…how do we get there from here? That's the question Maryn Boess will explore in this down-to-earth, myth-busting session. Here is what you'll take away from this session: You'll understand the importance of taking a "total value" approach to budget-building, to clearly and compellingly show the value of everything it takes to do our work successfully. You'll learn why the form the grantmaker gives you is (almost always) the wrong tool for planning your budget—and what you can use instead. You'll have the chance to whip out your calculator and try your hand at thinking through some of the "total-value" challenges in our real-life scenario—some are pretty tricky! You'll get a behind-the-scenes view of how grantmakers evaluate your proposal budget and what your budget tells them about your organization. And we'll clear away the confusion around the value of volunteer time, accounting for "match," handling administrative/indirect costs, and other perennially perplexing budget issues. BONUS: In this session, you'll be introduced to GrantsMagic U's exclusive Master Budget Planning Checklist and Worksheet, a powerful planning tool to help you craft a budget that is comprehensive, realistic, and bullet-proof—and that will work for you, your organization, and your grantmaking partners.
