Get 3 Times More Grant Funding While Cutting Your Time By 80%

Something amazing happened to me after about 12 years of grant writing and a 92% success rate on all my grants. When I finished writing grant proposal #52, I looked down at my watch.

I noticed that it had only taken me four hours to pull everything together for that proposal.

Somehow, I had magically gone from writing my first grant proposal in 100 hours to writing my last proposal (for four times the amount of money) in only four hours.

How did I go from writing a $125,000 grant with 100 hours of work to a $420,000 grant with only 4 hours of work?

That’s what this course is about!

The secret is to be GRANT READY and have a system in place before an RFP (Request For Proposal) comes from a funder, before a grant funding opportunity ever gets announced.

Whether you need $400 or $4,000 or even $400,000, this grant readiness system really works.

What U.S. grant-making foundations and corporations have in common is that they are looking for similar documents that largely fall into four key categories:

Governance (i.e., annual reports, list of board members, etc.)
Financial (i.e., annual operating budget, IRS form 990, etc.)
Legal (i.e., IRS letter of determination, etc.)
Program (i.e., qualifications of personnel, problem statement, population served, budget, etc.)
The above four categories are at the core of documents you should collect up front. They constitute the first four sections of the six (6) primary tabs/folders that should be in your 3-ring binder and system in the cloud:

GuideStar Exchange Program
Program Management
Public Disclosures
In this course, you will learn what documents to collect up front to be GRANT READY!

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
