May 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

This webinar is offered by Philanthropy CA. Visit their website for full details and to register.

You can think of a grant budget as another way to describe a program and its activities. Everything you have proposed to do in the program is represented somewhere in the budget, and if an activity is missing from the budget, you need to ask why! Grant budgets also represent partnerships, collaborations, and community involvement activities.

Topics in this webinar will include:

Budgeting
  • Developing a program budget
  • Relating program design to budget
  • Determining expenses
  • Common budget terminology (FTE, fringe, and others)

  • Showing calculations
  • Sustainability
Partnerships and Collaboration
  • Distinguishing collaboration vs. coordination
  • Ways of engaging: consortium, stakeholder groups, partnerships, advisory councils
  • Requirements in an application (letters of support, memoranda of understanding – MOU)
  • Planning a collaborative project, budgeting and accountability for a collaborative project
  • Managing the funded project with partners
