When I teach this course, it takes time away from my clients. So while I’d love to do nothing but teach others what I know about grant writing, it’s just not practical. Enrollment is limited to ensure that every student gets the attention and feedback they need. I do not plan to open enrollment again any time soon. Our client stable is packed and 20 students at a time is all I can manage.
Sure! Our number is (423) 406-2907. We are getting a lot of inquiries, so please be prepared to leave a message and we'll call you back as soon as possible. We're a small office, not a call center, but we promise to return your call within 24 hours.
I loved it because it was practical and concise and you thoroughly answered my many questions. I also love the hand out and have referred back to it many times.
I highly recommend this training for anyone interested in writing grants. As a brand new grant writer, it replaced my grant writing fears with a practical and knowledgeable approach to writing proposals.
Grant Funding… Not sure where to begin?! Stumped by logic models? Baffled by budgets? Uncertain how to draft a compelling narrative? Look no further! This IS the course for you! Whether you are looking to write your first grant proposal for a specific project or someone who seeks to build a strong foundation for a satisfying career in grant writing, this course is an excellent investment in your success! By leveraging the practical tools and immediately applicable knowledge gained from this course, I have built a meaningful and rewarding career that spans nearly two decades! Beginning with mostly private foundation grants and evolving into mixed portfolio that includes large-scale government funding, I have honed my skills and transitioned professionally multiple times. I currently manage roughly $10M in grant funds—an amount that seemed astronomical when I first began. KFA Nonprofit Funding Solutions played a BIG role in equipping me for success. Thank you!
I want you to know that since I attended your workshop, I've had so much success as a grant writer. For example, from November 2017 to May 2018, I raised $1.5 million in grant funding for a private/charter school in Houston, TX. I always tell people that I had learned so much about grant writing from you, and it's part of why I've been successful in this field. Thank you so much for the effort you put into making your workshops transformative for hopefuls like me!
