NYS Grants Gateway Info Session: Best Practices for Nonprofit Governance & Policy Creation
Are you in the process of becoming ‘prequalified’ with New York State in order to receive funding for a contract currently in place or for future funding for which you’d like to be considered?
Your prequalification status may be delayed for multiple reasons. If your application is being held (or if you haven't been able to complete it) due to questions about any of the following reasons this workshop will be a great resource for you.
- Operational documents (charitable determination letter from the IRS, audit, IRS Form 990, Organizational chart, etc.)
- Governance Policies & Practices (internal controls, separation of duties, nepotism and other clauses in your bylaws and personnel policies)
- Other Documents or Governance Policies that you don’t have and aren’t sure how to create.
In this session we will be focusing on best practices for nonprofit governance and policy creation as they relate to the Grants Gateway portal, the prequalification questionnaire and the online Document Vault. We will also be discussing the options and process for NYCON assistance available to you as a member.
Join us on Friday November 15th, 2013 from 9:00am to 12:00pm to learn what your organization needs to do by way of best Governance and Policy practices in order to become a prequalified nonprofit with New York State.
