We at Writing to Make a Difference have partnered with the Grant Professionals Association
(GPA) to announce the fourth annual International Grant Professionals Day on March 9, 2018. The special day increases awareness internationally of the work grant professionals perform, and celebrates grant administrators, consultants, managers, grantmakers and grant writers.
Every day, grant professionals work diligently, usually behind the scenes, to seek grant opportunities, administer projects and implement important programs for the benefit of society’s disadvantaged and underserved people. These talented professionals are dedicated to providing the highest standard of ethics, quality program development, thoughtful project implementation, and wise financial stewardship. Often, those standards extend beyond the mere financial and include capacity support, long-term solutions to challenges, fundraising assistance, expert project management, sustainable programming, and so much more.
Jo Miller, GPC-President of GPA, said: “Please join me in celebrating International Grant Professionals Day. Grant professionals are actively involved in improving society, from roads to schools, from small business to health care, from advancements in technology to helping communities recover from disasters. All of us are impacted by the hard work that grant professionals accomplish to make our communities better. Please share your gratitude with a grant professional today.”
Events planned for March 9, 2018 encourage grant professionals and their organizations to celebrate themselves and the profession, and highlight important issues faced by grant professionals.
GPA is a professional organization that builds and supports a community of grant professionals
committed to serving the greater public good.
