This module includes information on finishing your NSG granting cycle through project wrap-ups, the Wrap-Up Celebration event, and program evaluation. This provides opportunities to foster more connections between people involved in the program, celebrate the gifts they contributed, and gather and consider their feedback. It is also the time when we reflect on how the program can reach an even wider range of people in the next granting cycle, and learn from the successes and challenges of the current year of granting.
