Training and Courses That Meet You Where You Are to Take You Farther in Your Career

When You Know Better You Do Better

As Maya Angelou wrote, “When you know better you do better.” In the case of grantwriting, the more knowledge you have, the better your grants and your chances of your grant winning funding. The best way for grant professionals and nonprofit professionals to grow their grantsmanship skills is through relevant professional development and coaching delivered by experts that match your needs and long-term goals.

  • Align with GPCI competencies
  • Are led by nationally recognized GPA-approved trainers
