Listen, previous participants have been overwhelmed by how impactful and interactive this training is and are amazed that they feel confident and ready to conquer the grant writing world after just one class.  They have reported how they were told how hard it is to write grants, some have even spent thousands of dollars on so called “grant writers” who haven’t been able to deliver, and some have horror stories about trying to write them without any type of training.
 
You will be given comprehensive training, which includes how to start an effective non-profit, learn about your tax forms including your 501c3, learn how to write a grant and actually write a group proposal that day in class, you will get a step-by-step guidebook, you have a grant writer that is available to answer questions after your class…and…we will also be providing you with a list of over 600 funders who are looking to fund programs like yours RIGHT NOW!  So, we ask you, what excuse do you have not to learn how to grant write, right now?
