Celebrating IGPD – International Grant Professionals Day
The path to becoming a grant professional is different for each and every one of us. Many of us are ‘accidental grant professionals’. We stepped up to save a program, increase an organization’s service levels, or to meet a new community need. We dove in, we researched, we wrote, we submitted, we waited (fingers crossed) and we received the notice of the award. We get hooked on looking at problems and being the architect for solutions.
This week we’re celebrating grant professionals and International Grant Professionals Day!
