Overland Park, KS: OpenWater has partnered with the Grant Professionals Association (GPA) to celebrate the fifth annual International Grant Professionals Day on March 8, 2019. International Grant Professionals Day increases awareness internationally of the work grant professionals perform as well as celebrates the work of grant professionals, who serve as administrators, consultants, managers, grant-makers and 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.
At OpenWater, we’re all about bringing the grantmaking and grant-applying process to the digital sphere. For International Grant Professionals Day this year, we celebrate the miracle workers who work tireless on the administrative end of every grant application cycle.
Events planned for March 8, 2019 encourage grant professionals and their organizations to celebrate themselves, the profession and highlight important issues faced by grant professionals.
