#1: It offers feedback
To get really good at writing grants, you need to write grants :). However, before you turn them into the funding source it is helpful if what you are submitting is top-notch. After all, you spend hours and hours writing the grant so you really want it to get funded. Your sweat equity is HUGE!
The Guam and CNMI 6-Week Grant Writing Training not only gives you instruction and templates to write compelling grants, you will also get feedback during the training! This is a huge value as getting feedback can make the difference between getting funded or not. Plus, it will help save you time when you go down a project rabbit hole.
Throughout the 6 weeks, you will work on a Master Grant Application or you can bring in a real live grant that you are working on submitting, and get feedback from Holly and your cohort. World-renowned grant writer Holly Rustick also provides reviewing grants as a stand-alone service that ranges from $1,500 and up. You will get that level of feedback included within the six weeks.
#2: It’s a Simple Step-by-Step Program
If you have hundreds of hours of content and a 300-page manual, you’re not going to get into it.
If you have a myriad of content you are trying to learn from (i.e. random YouTube videos, downloadables from various sources) you are going to feel disjointed and things (links) are going to get lost.
We need simple tools and methods that do just enough to: a) free up some of our time and b) make sure we get the strategies done!
The Guam and CNMI 6-Week Grant Writing Training is a six module system that includes a resource library for you to return to again and again. For instance, if you are working on a logic model in the future and want a refresher you can return to the logic modal section and brush up on your skills and download the logic modal samples.
I give you everything you need to ensure you increase your ability to write effective grant proposals.
This is not a generic “just ask for more funding” kind of course. I’ve created a system that walks you through the entire grant writing process. This starts with understanding grants all the way to submitting them.
The Guam and CNMI 6-Week Grant Writing Training will provide the exact step-by-step that I have used for decades to secure grant funding.
#3: It is Customized for Guam & CNMI
Certain grants are more difficult to get for our region. Therefore, it is good to know how to look for these specific grant funding sources. Furthermore, you won’t operate in a silo any longer. This will bring together other nonprofits to network, partner, and leverage resources.
Think of this as your place to collaborate – not compete. The more we work together, the more funding comes in and we all win.
I know your in-person fundraisers – galas, concerts, and other (I too miss in-person conferences at the Dusit!) – have been impossible throughout the pandemic. It is time to increase your grant writing skills for existing funds that are available. Sure, we can also talk about products, services and more at our in-person trainings! But let’s tap into funds that are out there right now!
