You will also find that you are well prepared and equipped to submit your grant for approval.
Some people ask if there is follow up or someone they can call with questions.  The answer is Yes.  We offer several ways to follow up from phone calls to in-depth consultations and offer one-on-one trainings so you have the training specific to your organizational needs.  Don’t worry, you have support – now let’s make your dreams reality!
We look forward to meeting you!
