Get Grants!

Here's good news if you're a grant writer—even in lean times, there's plenty of money out there! In this course, two experts who've raised millions of dollars in grant money will tell you how to develop successful, fundable grants.   

First, they'll walk you step-by-step through the process of grant proposal writing, revealing the "must-have" proposal elements and the seven deadly sins you need to avoid. You'll learn to recognize what makes a project attractive to a funding agency and see how to create a compelling case. In just a few weeks, you'll be prepared to convert an idea into a complete, well-developed package. 

In addition, you'll discover how to target the best funding agencies for your project and learn insider secrets for approaching them in the right way. You'll also see how to follow up on a proposal, and you'll find out when it's possible to turn a "no" into a "yes."

Whether you're interested in writing grant proposals as a career or in obtaining funding for your organization, this course will give you the grant-writing skills you need to outshine your competition. Highly recommended for development professionals, educators, non-profit agency staff members or volunteers, and anyone else involved in fundraising for a large or small organization.

While the skills you'll learn during this course are transferable, we do want to emphasize that the focus of this class is on obtaining grant funding for non-profit organizations.

About The Instructor

Bo Morton and Janet Levine

The two instructors for this class have over 20 years of experience in grant writing.

Janet Levine has been involved with grant writing and fund raising since 1988. In 2007, after almost 20 years "in the trenches"  Janet started her consulting company, Janet Levine Consulting, to help nonprofits increase their fundraising capacity.  Just before starting her consulting company, Janet was the Vice President for University Advancement at a public, urban university. She has been a fundraiser and administrator at a number of colleges, universities and other non-profit organizations. In addition to her work experience, Levine has her Masters of Business Administration from Pepperdine University and a B.A. from Hofstra University. She writes about issues affecting nonprofits and fundraising in her blog, Too Busy To Fundraise, and regularly teaches workshops on fundraising and board development.  Janet is a frequent presenter at professional conferences. 

Bo Morton has spent over 15 years as a grants development practitioner. For more than a decade she was a full-time Director of Grants Development and Management at  a community college where she was responsible for developing and submitting grant proposals for various college programs and for assisting faculty and staff with project development, proposal writing, budget development as well as with managing their grants.  She was also tasked with securing funding for the new initiatives and developing relationships with potential funders. During her tenure at the college, she secured over $75 Million in grants for college programs.

Since 2011, Bo has been assisting international nonprofits and NGOs, and educational institutions in developing resources via grants from governments, private foundations and multilateral organizations as well as private donations, program income and other revenue streams via her company Linked-to-Grow. Bo is a strong believer in creative approaches to resource development, in maximizing the potential of linkages and partnerships, and focusing on documented social impact rather than perceptions.
