Funders approach the task of assessing grantee financial health in a multitude of ways. Depending on the staffing and structure of a foundation, financial due diligence can be a task undertaken by grants managers, finance staff, program officers, or a team that crosses functional areas. FMA has worked with many funders to solidify this partnership, and facilitates a conversation with two grants management professionals who have embarked on a journey to strengthen their partnership – and have each taken a very different approach.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- The benefits and drawbacks of various models for assessing grantee financial health
- Strengthening the partnership between grants managers and program officers by working together to understand grantees’ financial health
- The impact of different approaches to financial due diligence on relationships with grantees
