Grantsmanship Training Program-Online


January 25 - 29, 2021


Sponsored by Maintaining Active Citizens, Inc. (MAC Inc.)

MAC - Your area agency on aging



In this comprehensive, fast-paced, five-day training, you learn how to find funders that support your mission, how to create the core parts of an effective grant proposal and then, working in teams, you develop real grant proposals for team members' organizations. The exciting culmination of the class is the proposal review on Friday where, in a supportive and constructive environment, you analyze the proposals produced in class just like funders do—see what works and what can be even better.

You're in good hands all week, guided by a caring and expert trainer with decades of experience, eager to help you bring the best to your community. This class combines lively presentation with discussion and interactive exercises. Connect with colleagues, refine your ideas, and build skills as you master the ins and outs of grant proposal development. Leave this training enthused, full of new information, ready to command new skills into action, plus you have a stack of freshly reviewed proposals.

Special Opportunity! This training is being offered to selected nonprofits. The standard fee for this training plus the textbook, Grantsmanship: Program Planning & Proposal Writing, is $1,140. Thanks to underwriting by MAC, Inc., participants receive this valuable experience at a subsidized rate of $450.


Space is limited to only 24 participants. For questions or to apply, contact:
