It can be an unofficial/internal title, but giving the grant a title is necessary for management and tracking. Next, you can add details like the date when the grant was awarded, as well as the fully payable-by date. Next, add in the amount awarded as well as the Funder. It is also optional to attach a soft credit if relevant. 

Type of Funding - General Operating or Restricted

  1. General Operating Support - The funding is immediately available for any mission-related purposes.
  2. Restricted Funding - The funder has imposed conditions (usually based on time frame or purpose) on how you are allowed to spend these funds. (Most grants fall into this category)
