A to Z Grant Writing is an invigorating and informative course that will equip you with the skills and tools you need to enter the exciting field of grant writing!

You'll also learn how to network and develop true partnerships with a variety of funders, how to organize a successful grant writing campaign, and how to put together a complete proposal package.
This course speaks mainly to nonprofit organizations, schools, religious institutions, and municipalities seeking grants from foundation, corporate, government, and individual donors. It's also an excellent primer for individuals wishing to become grant writing consultants or community grant writing volunteers.
Many of this course's elements also easily translate to the for-profit field and to individual artists, and material specifically designed for businesses and individuals is included. No matter who you are or what level of experience you have, you'll find the A to Z of writing and submitting successful proposals here!
Course Updated July 2013
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 want to thank you for such an informative and convenient course! I've learned so much and have recently accepted a postion working with a local non-profit group as a grant writer. We have many programs on the burner, so my work is cut out for me. Again, thank you!
This was one of the best courses I have ever taken. Your vast experience and attention to detail, along with your obvious passion for what you do, shows in all of the lessons. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and learning about grant writing. I plan to take more grant writing courses and possibly change careers into this field. Thank you!
This class has been very helpful. I have greater confidence in the approach to grant writing, and to potential funders. Thank you for your time, effort, extensive information and resource material. Thanks also for showing the order for presenting all of these elements. This class was well worth my time and finances.
I finished my final exam and I'm excited as I look back at everything I've learned in such a short time. With every lesson I experienced a renewed sense of admiration for the way you have put this course together. It is extremely informative yet simple for anyone to understand. Your examples are relevant and very helpful--along with the valuable advice and tips you offered. The organization methods with pictures (binders, file cabinet, folders) were so practical. I have learned so much from this course!!
Each lesson amazes me at how much research and work goes into grant writing. Thank you for all your extremely well-organized training and your willingness to share your vast knowledge.
Thank you for offering this course, and sharing your knowledge of grant writing! I found the course interesting and engaging. I will be utilizing the material provided in the course as a "grant writing reference manual"...The course is very learner-friendly...When I began this course, I felt like I had no idea where to start when approaching a grant/good match potential funder, or what the field was really about. A to Z grant writing has put a lot of those elements into perspective for me.
Thank you so much for the wonderful information, guidance, tips and resources. This was an awesome class! The course exceeded my expectations and I feel the information you provided was extraordinary. I will be passing my lesson's learned and suggestions to my director. I am sure we will be able to implement many of the guidelines you provided to improve our methods for applying and receiving grants for our non-profit organization. Thanks so much. I really enjoyed the class.
I have two college degrees and love workshops and other continuing education opportunities. This is my first online course. You have made a believer out of me for sure! Thank you for a well-organized, highly informative, and surprisingly personal experience.
Thank you for putting together an awesome, educational program for fledgling grant writers...It will greatly improve the quality of our local library and will help me polish my job and networking skills...Thanks again!!!
I couldn't help but thank you for the time-saving methods that you are teaching us. Initially, I thought that this grant writing thing would be unattainable, but you give us so much of yourself and what you have used to be successful that it makes me feel that I can do this and do it well myself. I am taking further courses and I can only hope that all of the instructors will be as transparent and helpful as you have been. Thank you!
