  • EX: In the budget for Eagle Rock Library we had more In-kind donations than actually budget money for equipment. Equipment total was $10,000. In-Kind donations were $20,000 described as local high school volunteers installing tattle tape on all material before receiving equipment on a Sunday when we are closed and utilizing are supervisor (at fair-market value)
  • This list is for awareness only. It is to let you know I as the grant coordinator will be very busy creating, distributing, analyzing, comparing, editing and possibly submitting all these documents.
  • Who would you like on our grant team to assist you to assist Grant Coordinator as a back-up (vacation, sick, or just overwhelmed). Who can assist with similar objectives you have for the program.
  • I as the Grant Coordinator will need you or an assistant to proofread.
