How do you handle the history of organizations that have changed their names?
For example, If Outagamie County Historical Society has received a dozen grants under this title, and then changes its name to History Museum at the Castle (true story) how do you preserve that history of the old name? If I merge the organizations, then I lose the name of the organization that received the grant in that history. If I leave them separate, then when I go to pull a history of grant making to the History Museum at the Castle, it will lose the history of having received grants as Outagamie County Historical Society.
I just wanted to start a conversation around grant application reviews and see what others are doing to review applications. I mostly ask this because I know many of you will know that there are many components to a grant application, and keeping track of all components can be a little cumbersome. So, I would love to see what others are doing and see if there's something I could be doing differently to make the initial review of our applications easier. I am attaching the current review template I created because the organization had nothing in place when I got here. I would love for others to share what they are doing when they begin reviewing applications and the required components of the application.
