Coming off of the Board Series I have been thinking about resources available to help you organize better and be prepared for the grant seeking process. In addition to a well-informed and organized Board, did you know that many foundations ask if you've completed the Standards for Excellence Accreditation?
So many nonprofits doing great and important work are not being funded because they are missing key components of organization or management that can be rectified by better training and preparation.
So I've complied a list of online resources that every nonprofit should know about. This is by no means a complete list, but it is a wonderful start.
