International Grant Professionals Day

International Grant Professionals Day increases awareness 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, especially the disadvantaged and underserved. 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.

The Grant Professionals Association (GPA) encourages grant professionals and their organizations to celebrate the profession and highlight important issues faced by grant professionals on Friday, March 10, 2023.
