What makes Gets Grants a different kind of grantwriting course?
For starters, your instructors have raised millions of dollars in grant funds and will share what they have learned over the years with you. More importantly, we will walk you through both federal and foundation grantwriting, pointing out the differences and similarities. In this course, you will learn how to develop successful, grant-fundable proposals.
Over the 6-week course you'll be shown step-by-step the process of grant proposal writing, whether you are tackling a federal grant, one from a national private foundation or a smaller grant from your local foundation.
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, nonprofit 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 nonprofit organizations.
Course Revised May 2015
A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.

I enjoyed the course and feel that I now have the basic tools to build upon in my pursuit to mastering the art of grant writing. Your instructions were easy to follow without being too simplistic or elementary. This made the pace of reading each chapter perfect for me.
I found the course to be very relevant to my needs. I learned about things that I would never have been able to find out by myself. I feel now I have the tools to write and apply for grants and be sucessful. I think my organization will profit from this knowledge.
I want to think you for all of the information on grant writing. I've learned much more than expected and I'm planning to put it to good use. I didn't realize how much time, information, and research it would take to complete one grant.
Thank you so much. This really enlightened me and taught me a lot. I now see some ways I can help the organization I am working with. Before, I had no idea what grant writing was about or how to go about getting grants.
This has been a wonderful educational experience. I feel prepared to 'venture into the world of grants' on behalf of the historical organization I represent. Thank you for designing this course and for sharing your expertise in this area.
I appreciate how well organized the course material is. I find that the concepts are clearly and concisely explained. I have printed the lessons and will surely refer to this course material often as I write grant proposals for my organization. Many thanks to both instructors. The course was excellent, and I would surely recommend it to others.
The course is exceptionally well done. The instructors were clear and surprisingly thorough, given the time and space restraints. They were very good at eliciting student participation in discussions and promptly provided extremely thoughtful and helpful responses. The resources provided are excellent and well annotated. Frankly, this is one of the best training workshops I have seen. I highly recommend it.

Get Grants! was a very useful class and I learned a lot. The most useful part to me was the feedback I received on the different sections and the rewrites that I submitted. I felt encouraged and my work was assessed by the instructor, which made me better at each task. Thanks!
My expectations were high but the course far exceeded my expectations. I found the information, from the material for each lesson to the FAQs and Supplementary Material, to be invaluable. I would not want to pursue grant writing without the preparation this course provided.
