Tracks to Success

Understanding Federal Grant Compliance

by Zubin Segal

Federal grant compliance is a topic that may not be sexy, but it is integral to the success of any federal grant you may have received. To guide this conversation, I tapped into the expertise of federal grant compliance consultant and trainer Jerry Bertrand of Public Impact Advisors. Jerry has spent decades in the nonprofit and grant sectors in a variety of leadership roles, specializing in the Uniform Guidance, grant and financial management policies, and their related areas. He currently serves as a trainer, coach, and consultant to a number of federal grant recipients and applicants. If there is a question about federal grants, Jerry most likely has the answer.

I hope you can use this article as a go-to resource when you need to prioritize your activities, as well as cut through some of the online clutter and jargon out there, leaving you more time for your deliverables. And this skill set is not limited to federal grants—it can help you to be competitive for future streams of funding of all types. Read the full article.

Forecasting Revenue and Annual Projections

Wednesday, November 13, 2019

If you are the leader of a nonprofit organization, you have almost certainly been asked to predict the future revenue and expenses during the annual budget season. And if you’ve ever been in a cash crunch, you may have wished you’d planned a little more rigorously earlier in the year. At Elevate, we know this task can feel challenging at best, and near-impossible at worst—which is why we want to share our secrets behind the same forecasting and projection process we use to produce forecasting charts for our nonprofit clients. In this webinar, presented by Alayna Buckner, we’ll cover why forecasting is important; how often to go through the forecasting process; and how to create your own forecasting or projections chart for your organization. This training is ideal for development managers, directors of development, leaders of small nonprofit organizations, and other nonprofit and fundraising professionals who want a better understanding of the budgeting and forecasting process. It is also helpful for grantwriters looking to deepen their understanding of nonprofit budgets and finance practice.
