“Words for Good has done nothing less than exceptional work for the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis. They quickly grasped and expertly organized all facets of our grants process. The Y owes them a debt of gratitude for sustaining and improving our fund development efforts.”
Whether you’re temporarily short-staffed or chronically overwhelmed in tracking the ins and outs of your grants activity, we can bring structure to your grant management chaos. We serve as ongoing grant managers for some clients and an as-needed writer of important grant reports for others. We also provide tools to maintain good stewardship of grant awards and ease the reporting process.
Our post-award services include, but are not limited to, creating internal work plans to plan for and track internal grants activity (proposals and reports), preparing grant reports, and ensuring compliance with funder regulations. For example, federal grants are subject to complex compliance regulations. We are well-versed in the federal Uniform Grant Guidance (UGG).
We were recruited by the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis in spring 2014 to temporarily fill in the gaps after the departure of two grants staff members. In a few short months, we revamped their grants management structure, identified and pursued new prospects, wrote and submitted new proposals and ongoing grant reports, and effectively kept the train on the tracks with no stray baggage.
