When you want results!
A follow-up study of 125 of our graduates found they had won grants totaling over $5 million within six months of completing the 5-day Grantsmanship Training Program. Every one of those graduates left the training with a draft of a full proposal, sections of a proposal, a proposal outline, a project timeline, or a business plan - tangible work they could use immediately. No matter which of our trainings you complete, you’ll leave with something too.
When you want to learn more than just “grant writing”
It’s about the thinking, not just the writing. We help you focus on program planning, developing logical and compelling proposals, mastering powerful research tools, and building partnerships to increase impact. You'll also learn about clear, direct writing and how to submit your proposal, whether on paper or electronically. This deep and comprehensive approach is the heart of our training—because it works!
Don't just take our word for it
An independent evaluation of 381 Grantsmanship Training Program graduates found that their new skills had strengthened their organizations and increased grant success. The organizations were using funder research tools more effectively; doing better program planning; defining more measurable outcomes; starting or improving evaluation processes; placing more emphasis on program sustainability; and collaborating more effectively with other organizations.
When your organization wants more financial stability
Depending only on grant funding can leave an organization in a vulnerable spot. That's why we also provide Social Enterprise for Nonprofits—a powerful way to produce income by tapping ready resources that align with your organization's mission. Rise above the crowd of grantseekers by demonstrating ongoing financial savvy and strength.
When you want a dynamic, hands-on learning experience
All that energy you find in our classrooms? It’s the training, not the coffee. Using our lively Listen & Discuss, Do & Review® curriculum, you’ll put new knowledge into practice immediately, build solid skills, and retain what you’re learning. And you’ll probably have a good time.
When you want an expert, caring mentor
Your trainer will guide you through every step of the training. All our trainers have deep and solid experience in the field, up-to-date expertise, and practical know-how. They are skilled presenters who can hold an audience. And they care about your success.
When you want follow-up support as part of the package
We’re here for you after you complete your training—you’re not alone. We’ll welcome you into The Grantsmanship Center’s Membership Program and provide you with extensive follow-up services at no additional cost.
