How to Support Our Nonprofits AND Ourselves as Grant Professionals

Written by:

There is no doubt that these are unprecedented times for all of us as individuals and as grant professionals.

I have lost track of how many emails I have received that are talking about how businesses, grantmakers, and nonprofits are responding to COVID-19. I thought email traffic was heavy before…now I realize exactly how many email lists I am on for colleagues, organizations we are donors for, and businesses that we are customers of. WOW.

Yet here I am, adding more information into an already overwhelming amount of information about how people and organizations are responding to the coronavirus. I wanted to gather resources that I have found to be valuable and information that is specific to grant seeking organizations and grant professionals in one place.

I plan to continue to update the information in this post as our team’s way to support YOU, grant seeking organizations and grant professionals, as you continue to do amazing things for your community and for your organizations.

Be well,

Diane H. Leonard, GPC
