Grantseeking Facts and Findings

by Ellen Mowrer

This year’s State of Grantseeking Survey had over 2,800 respondents, and their grantseeking experiences can help inform your grantseeking experience. Here are some takeaways from the 2019 State of Grantseeking Report. The individuals who took part in the survey on grantseeking are actively engaged in grantseeking. If you are not yet involved in grantseeking, these benchmarks can serve as guides or goals as you embark on a grants program for your organization.

LIVE Workshop: Tracking Restricted Grants in QuickBooks

Tuesday, December 10, 2019 (DESKTOP version)
Wednesday, December 11, 2019 (ONLINE version)

Do you receive grants that are restricted in some way? Do you struggle to complete grant spending reports at the end of these grants? Do you spend hours going through transactions and payroll reports trying to figure out which expenses were paid from a grant? And what about grants with a budget by account that must be adhered to? By simply setting up a few things, you can easily get a profit and loss statement for each of your restricted grants (compared to budget if you’d like). See reports for your grants all on one screen and in real time. All of this and more can be easily tracked right in your QuickBooks software! We are very excited to have Gregg Bossen, a CPA specializing in nonprofits, deliver one of his most popular webinars exclusively for us. In this webinar, Gregg will show you how you can easily track restricted grants in QuickBooks. Topics include how and where to set up your grantors, how to enter grant revenue, how to point expenses to a grant, how to allocate payroll to a grant, how to enter grant budgets, how to generate and memorize reports on your grants, and how to deal with future year grants received this year that make it look like you made more money than you did. Don’t miss this opportunity! You will be VERY glad you joined us.
