Why We Do This
"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."

FYI: We're so Passionate, Knowledgeable, and Supportive that we literally wrote the book on Grant Writing.
This book is everything you need to get started. It’s succinct, practical, and fun to read.
The book, 'How to Write a Grant' breaks down the complexity of grant writing so that anyone canlearn to be a professional. It's refreshingly straightforward with a modern approach. As someone who works in grants day in and day out, I highly recommend.

My original copy of How to Write a Grant Become a Grant Writing Unicorn is well thumbed, dogeared, highlighted, and bristling with bookmarked pages. I couldn't imagine how you'd improve something I'd already found so useful.

“As a special needs mom, I know I can learn anything. But I still struggle with imposter syndrome and overwhelm as a new grant writer. Meredith's witty and wise insights are clear, authentic, and immediately actionable. You will not regret reading this book.
New Grant Writer
"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!"
