No one knows better than you what it takes to make a grant. You’re asked to be a process, policy, program, legal, accounting, evaluation, communications, data, and technology expert—while providing excellent customer service to grantseekers, staff, and leadership—at the same time that you’re protecting your organization through ensuring due diligence and compliance. That’s a lot for any person to manage, but the good news is that you are not alone.
