Grants 101 – Grant Ethics



Grants 101 – Grant Ethics
Session 10 of the Grants 101 Series

All grant professionals experience ethical moments throughout their career. It is our professional duty to guide the organizations we work for on ethical conduct. This conduct extends beyond whether funding can be spent differently than was written in the grant proposal. Ethics are important throughout the full grant lifecycle. This training will introduce individuals working with grants to the most common ethical codes followed by grant and development professionals and some of the most common ethical dilemmas presented to those who work with grant regularly.

Grants 101 Training Series

Grants are about so much more than just grant writing. This series of grant trainings will guide you through 1) researching opportunities, 2) building relationships with funders, 3) designing high quality programs, 4) organizational readiness, 5) writing grant proposals, and 6) managing grants. In addition, to guide your continued learning, we have a training to help you decide where you want to grow next based on the career path options available to you.

These sessions are designed to give basic knowledge to a nonprofit professional who is just starting to learn about grants or who has had no formal training in grants. This program breaks the concepts down into manageable pieces that can be learned over time.
