Grants are more than on paper - Prepare for your next site visit
Carol Butera, CFRE, William and Marie Selby Foundation
Even the most artful and comprehensive grant proposal may not convey all the information necessary for a foundation to make a fully informed decision about a grant request. And sometimes, there is nothing that can replace the opportunity to sit down face-to-face with an applicant, see agency staff in action, and flesh out important details about an organization or program. For this reason, often there is nothing as informative to a grantmaker as a pre-grant site visit. Attendees will learn the important steps in planning for a site visit and how to prepare the answers and documentation necessary to address likely questions, as well as how to be ready to explain and illustrate the need for the grant requested.
