Our Story

Once upon a time, a grant writer unearthed a big problem: there were no options for learning to write grants in a modern, refreshing way. Existing options were “old school” and expensive.

The idea? Create an online learning experience that makes grant writing approachable and fun.

Learn Grant Writing was founded on the belief that our time should be spent adding real value to our communities and leading fulfilling lives.

By choosing to learn with us, you are supporting a bootstrapped startup. Thank you for believing in us and joining our vibrant community of changemakers.
