Grant Professionals Impact Survey – 2012 Data Collection Complete

For the third year, the Grant Professionals Foundation spearheaded the collection of data related to the impact grant professionals make in their communities each year.  Thank you to each participant who took the time to complete the survey, providing data that will help us measure the vital impact grant professionals make each year.

The survey collected 2012 fiscal year data to compare against data from fiscal years 2010 and 2011.  It is expected that the results from this year’s survey will be made available in early 2014.

In the meantime, if you are interested in the data from the first two surveys, everyone is invited to download our White Paper, “Results of the Grant Professionals Impact Survey: A look at the 2011 – 2012 Surveys”. Click Here:  Grant Professionals Impact Survey Results.pdf

Each individual who completed the survey was eligible to enter our drawing for a free conference registration to the Grant Professionals Association’s 15th Annual Conference in Baltimore, MD, November 13-16, 2013 – a $575 value.  Congratulations to Teresa Hill, Grants Specialist for the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office in Brooksville, Florida, for winning the conference registration.
