We use programs to track our grant priority areas--the 6 major areas that we fund in:
  • Health and Wellness

They are broad, but designed that way to provide us with flexibility.

If anyone has business central, can anyone explain or share a chart that demonstrates how interests, funds, and programs inter-relate.  I'm trying to do a project budget for the first time and cannot understand how to set this up so that public facing interests can be funded and passed through to our grantmaking and as well as the projects that may or may not fall under the grantmaking categories.
