Philanthropy California

This program is presented through a partnership between Philanthropy California and the California Office of Emergency Services and is funded by the Listos California Grant Program.

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)
    • Common budget structure
    • 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)
    • Planning a collaborative project, budgeting and accountability for a collaborative project
    • Managing the funded project with partners

Who Should Attend?

Grant writers of small to mid-size community-based organizations, nonprofits, and Tribes. Also welcomed are development, planning, and program staff who want to learn about building grants capacity in your organization. Funders are also welcome to attend to learn more about how their grantees may be struggling to access public funding opportunities.
