During last Thursday's ICMA-eCivis webinar on the grant challenges and solutions of small communities, the expert panel posed the following polling question:
Which describes your organization's grant strategy?
- Well-defined, successful, and communicated throughout the organization
- Limited and targeted, but successful and understood by specific individuals
- Not consistently articulated, but departments are aware of common opportunities and understood by specific individuals
- Not articulated and likely missing significant opportunities
I won't tell you the results just yet. That would skew things, and I'd like to see how readers like yourself respond to this question. If you're on a tablet, you can take our three-question survey at the link. Otherwise, you'll find the poll conveniently located below. Be sure to also read our six-part series on Creating a Grants Office from Scratch. It's a popular series on relationship-building from federal and state grant expert Stacy Fitzsimmons.
