Course Overview

Grants management is an important element in humanitarian work. The ability of an organization to

manage grants effectively and efficiently ensures that the humanitarian operations are successful

which attracts more funding. Donors want monies channeled to the cause they funded. Poor

management of grants could lead to funding delays or termination which puts the name of the

organization in bad light while hurting project beneficiaries. Grants management is about having

accounting systems to track the fund and ensuring that the grant is utilized and accounted as proposed in

the grant proposal.

The key principles in grants management are:

 Budget and project work plan are followed to the letter

 Organizations cannot use the funds for items not budgeted
