Grants 201 Training Series

The average nonprofit professional needs more than just initial grant training. Anyone working with grants can analyze their strengths and weaknesses and then decide where they want to learn more deeply. Think of it as more tools in our toolbelt for that grant RFP or grant funder from whom we are determined to be successful.


These sessions are designed to provide deeper content on specific topics which challenge professionals who have been working with grants for more than a year.
