As our 10th Executive Director Academy draws near we ask our expert trainers how their sessions can benefit today’s busy nonprofit executive director. Here is what Lisa Cirincione, senior associate, grantwriting and resource development, had to say about our grantwriting session.

By Lisa Cirincione, JVA Consulting

Grants….In many respects, they are the lifeblood of nonprofit agencies, but in an already-way-too-crowded day, how much time do executive directors need to devote to them? In the EDA grantwriting session, executive directors will learn the proper role of grants in their agencies and what they can and cannot delegate to other staff and volunteers. This session may challenge your preconceived notions about grants and just how much is expected from you in order to have a successful grant program.
