Why We Do This

Imani Ackerman headshot

"I began my journey with the Global Grant Writers Collective as a full-time student and mom of young kids, looking to leverage my writing skills into a grant writing internship at a large nonprofit.

The Collective has equipped me with the systems and tools that I needed to take my career to another level. My internship quickly turned into a job with the expertise I acquired through the course and the amazing grant writing unicorn community.

However, to me,the best part has been the mindset work. Within my first year, I had a huge boost in confidence; learning to overcome my fear of failure and rejection, believe that I have so much to offer, and work smart doing what I love.

Ultimately, I gained the experience to win millions of dollars in grants for nonprofits. I have since begun freelancing and continue to prioritize the work-life balance I dream of while doing impactful work in the nonprofit sector. The Collective has helped me not just as a grant writer, but as a business woman, and as a human being."

Joy Dinkleman, founder of Joyful Grants

"The Grant Writing Collective has truly been a life transformation for me! I joined the Collective a few weeks after finishing my Master’s degree. While applying for jobs, I took a different grant writing course, but was not impressed. The Collective on the other hand, has given me all the tools and templates that I need to actually become a freelance grant writer. I felt so confident and supported by the Collective that I turned down a full-time job offer (a mediocre 9-5 job) and got my first grant client a few days later.

The Collective has given me the momentum and the resources I need to invest in building up my skills and developing my own freelance grant writing business. I have never been an entrepreneur, but the Collective provides everything you need to go from 0 to 100. This program has changed the whole trajectory of my life! I couldn’t be more excited nor feel more supported!"

About Us

We got to know each other by building a grant writing consulting business…crazy fast! We were inundated with requests during the pandemic.

We hired several of our students and grew to $250K/year in revenue. Now we teach you how to do the same. We give you everything to have the same success (and beyond) whether freelancing or landing a dream job.
