    GM101 is PEAK Grantmaking’s exclusive training workshop designed for professionals who are new to their role in grants management. This includes professionals with backgrounds in accounting, technology systems, program management, and other relevant areas.

    Grants management is often the department where program, finance, communications, application, approval, and administrative functions overlap. Grants managers perform a diverse set of tasks and maintain a wide range of professional relationships to ensure high-quality grants administration across programs. This workshop builds a basic understanding of the grants manager’s role, the grantmaking process, and the philanthropic context in which grantmaking takes place.

    By attending this workshop, you will be able to:

    • Explain the philanthropic context in which grantmaking takes place, including types of grantmakers and grantees
    • Describe and apply best practices for grants management
    • Articulate grantmaking’s legal and regulatory landscape
    • Assess the health and financial sustainability of prospective grantees
    • Employ internal administrative and tracking processes that support a grantmaking cycle
    • Promote grants management as a profession
    • Identify networking, skill-building, and learning and development opportunities
