Strengthening Nonprofits - Advancing The Grant Profession
The GPF is honored to provide the Susan Kemp GPA Conference Scholarship in memory of Susan Kemp, a longtime grant professional.
This scholarship is awarded to GPA members to cover the registration fee and three nights lodging for the GPA Annual Conference.
Susan, who passed away in 2011, dedicated herself tirelessly to improving the lives of others. She often shared that as a former teenage welfare mother who became Assistant Welfare Commissioner of New York State Children and Family Services, she saw firsthand how the work of grant professionals can affect people’s lives. Susan served as Director of Grants Management and managed the grant activities of the New York State Office of Children and Family Services for 11 years. During that time she shared grant opportunities with over 60,000 non-profit organizations on a daily basis. She trained hundreds of people across New York State to identify grant opportunities and read public and private requests for proposals with the hope of reminding people everywhere that social programs have real impact on real people, changing lives for the better.
