In-Person Board Training

Grant Writing & Funding believes that the first step to increase your competitiveness starts with your organization's board. If you have a poorly structured board, then even the best projects may have a hard time being sustained. A strong board, that is passionate and understands their duties, leads to sustained projects, healthy energy and productivity.
  • Do you have a hard time finding the right board members?
  • Do you have a high turnover rate with your board of directors?
The board training that Grant Writing & Funding offers includes analysis of:
  • Articles of Incorporation
  • Bylaws
  • Mission and Vision
  • Policies and Procedures
  • Financial Statements
  • Processes
We will help by discussing board duties, matrix of skills, governance, responsibilities and rights, handbooks, meeting efficiency, importance of committees and stakeholder involvement. If you want to create an engergized board that knows what is expected, then reach out to us!
