Expert Tools and Techniques for Managing Funded Programs and Keeping the Grant Money Flowing in As anyone with a history in nonprofit management knows, a grant recipient’s job is far from over once the check is cut. That’s just when the real work begins. Especially now, when funders are taking a more active role in seeing that their money makes the desired impact, it is vitally important to the future of your mission that the programs under your stewardship succeed, beyond even your own expectations. Grant Winner’s Toolkit can help make that happen.
