As a former Board Treasurer for a medium sized non-profit organization, I have firsthand experience with Grant Management. During my term as the non-profits Board Treasurer, a major portion of the organizations funding was based on a few annual grants. One day during a Board meeting, the Executive Director told us that we were losing our largest grant source because the appropriate paperwork had not been filed on-time with the funding agency. This filing error was a costly mistake the non-profit could have avoided with a low-cost grant management system in place. Thankfully, after five challenging years, the non-profit is still in business today. Let’s take a look how an affordable grant management system like Abila Grant Management could help non-profits like in this example avoid costly mistakes and maximize profits.
