Even More FAQs Before Saying "Yes!"

Don’t take out credit card debt to join us! Aside from that scenario, you will not find another program that shows you how to make money learning to write grants. $500 a month is a significant investment for most family budgets.

Truly spend some time with your budget to see where you can tighten up for a few months. Once you have that figured out, join us and move as fast as you want! 85% of members pay their investment back within 4-6 months.

First off - you won’t know until you try. Once you have done a few projects, let’s look at the absolute worst case scenario: you hate grant writing! Did you just waste a ton of time and money? Nope.

You learned the Organic Networking Framework which is a method to create dream opportunities regardless of the field.

You learned modern project management skills and software - an attractive skill set for any employer.

You learned how to make money and start a business - again regardless of industry. As you can see, your worst case scenario is nothing to be afraid of!

Our feelings used to get really hurt by this question, because we pour our heart and soul into the Collective. Now, however, we look around at all the empty promises online to build a life with more freedom and understand your hesitation.

Joining the Collective won’t buy you any quick fixes. We give you incredibly detailed step-by-step instructions and support, and you have to do the work. If you can consistently put 5-hours a week into this, you’ll be the next success story. You can check out reviews on the Collective on our Reviews Page and apply for a call here if you want to speak with us in person.

#realtalk - we have signed up for online programs and not finished them as well. In fact, we have spent over $65,000 on online courses and memberships. We have only been a part of one program that delivered at the level we provide in the Collective (and it cost $30,000 😳).

We obsess over how to help you get results as fast as possible. You will be supported through the architecture of this program and the incredible community to stick with it through the highs and lows. Yes, you must take responsibility to do the work and plan your weeks accordingly. Ultimately you are making a commitment to yourself and your goals. If you make that commitment, we are all in on you.

The most common fear prospective students have is not having enough time to watch the online instructional videos and take action. You’re busy. We get it! For that reason, we boiled the coursework down as tightly as possible.

You can Netflix binge Grant Writing: From Start to Funded (Module 1-3) in as little as 5 hours or take your time on a real-world project. Most take 6-8 weeks with 3-5 hours per week.

Successful students are blocking their schedule and treating the course like a college class. You wouldn’t miss a college class! Treat your online learning the same way and schedule the time for it.

This course is the most efficient way to learn grant writing. Option B is trial and error, and that takes years!

Welcome! Over half the people who learn from us have zero experience in grant writing when they got started.

But you have been thinking about it for a long time, right?

This is the perfect opportunity to carve out the time to explore that little something you always wanted to do. You are in a safe space to explore all the opportunities available to you with grant writing as a technical skill set.

Life is too short to not work on that which matters to you. You are in the right place. Join us!

Welcome! About 15% of the members in the Collective are dedicated grant writers in an organization (like a municipal government or nonprofit). Others have innovative ventures that they are looking to get funded by using grants as a creative business development tool. Some are brand new non-profits where the Executive Director needs to learn grant writing to get the organization up and running before passing on those duties.

Whatever your motivation, you will benefit from the training in the Global Grant Writers Collective. You will meet peers who are pursuing similar goals. You can bring your personalized questions and sticky situations to coaching calls. We routinely hire other experts to teach bonus trainings if a question comes up often enough. The bottom line is that you will be supported.

The only caveat we want to call out is that sometimes people want grants to pay for their business startup costs. Only in certain situations does that work, otherwise you will need to consider other types of financing.

The bulk of the course instruction is still relevant for you, regardless of location. The exceptions are that the grant writing database we teach is US based. We have members from throughout the world and they are finding the best grant research tools in their country. We are aggregating that information into a linkable google doc that you can reference. If your country isn’t included, we will collaborate with you to find the best tools.

Phase 5 has a few videos about the Rapid Business Formation Method which shows you how to set up an LLC. Obviously the rules for company formation, payroll and taxes will differ where you are from. Again, we ask members in the program to document the process they followed (with screenshots and step by step instructions). That information will be available to you. If your country isn’t included, then we ask you to help build out that business startup guide! You will help a future unicorn in the program! Tons of improvements are unicorn-led!

Aside from those caveats, everything applies regardless of your nation. Here’s a quote from Putul in India who is implementing the Organic Networking Framework to create paid grant writing opportunities: “Honestly, I had my reservations about whether this course will help me earn big bucks because of the whole Indian-Western context clouding my head but I now have no doubt that the 🦄 magic works across borders.”

The course is designed for beginner to intermediates, but we are continually amazed at the feedback advanced grant writers give us. They love refreshing their skills and learning new ways to do things.

Here’s a snippet of a quote from one of our advanced grant writers, Tara O’Hanley: “I’ve been chasing, working under, or administering grants for more than 20 years at this point, and today is easily the best I have ever felt about anything related to the grant writing process…What a relief, to go from merely working hard (and not knowing whether it will pay off) to working smart (and being able to relax, knowing that, if I stay focused, I have my best possible shot at success)… I’ll sing the praises of this course to anyone who will listen, for as long as I can!”

When you sign up, you are joining the Global Grant Writers Collective for one year. Your membership will renew next year unless you decide to cancel. Don’t worry, we will send you an email reminder! Your membership will be “grandfathered” in at the price you join today.

After submitting payment, you will have immediate access to the Grant Writing Unicorn Method! You can start watching Module 1 right away to get the lay of the land. We explain how you join the Facebook community group, how to download the app to listen on-the-go, etc.

We expect you to watch module one within your first week of joining so you have a strong start. The rest will come naturally once you’re inside. Come join us!
