BlackbaudTrue Nonprofit Accounting with Blackbaud
Traditional accounting systems cannot meet the specific challenges nonprofit financial officers face every day. Even the “nonprofit” versions of off-the-shelf software are ill-equipped to handle the unique requirements of nonprofit organizations. You need a true nonprofit accounting system, like The Financial Edge™ from Blackbaud, to help you track and manage all of your revenue streams in one place, reduce the time spent producing reports for your funders, enable budget controls to avoid overspending, automate the calculation of grant reimbursements, and allocate indirect costs to provide a complete grant picture. Read our free white paper, Why Nonprofits Need Nonprofit Accounting, and see why we say, “If you were using The Financial Edge, you’d be done by now.

Webinar Spotlight:
Collaborative Grantseeking: Five Secrets for Success When Partnerships Are Required

WebinarsTo get more bang for their buck in the current economic environment, many public and private sponsors "strongly encourage," if not outright require, collaboration in grant applications. The benefits of collaborating are many, but well well-intended grant collaborations don't always turn out as planned. Or worse, grant funding is awarded to a "phantom collaboration," a proposed partnership that existed in name only. In this webinar, Jeremy T. Miner will discuss five secrets for success when sponsors require collaboration on grant projects. He will also go over key factors that determine whether grant collaborations produce precious "wins" or painful "losses."

Participants will learn about different types of collaborations and essential characteristics of grant leaders that contribute to success when managing people and projects. The webinar will also include tips for integrating the concept of collaboration throughout proposals and actual comments from grant reviewers who evaluated collaborative proposals. Handouts will be distributed in advance of the Collaborative Grantseeking webinar, which will be held on Thursday, October 9, 2014.
