"This truly is the best program possible for developing strong grant writing habits and skills. Following your system is taking so much stress out of the process and allowing me to relax into the framework you've established."

Questions Asked Before Saying "Heck Yes!"

The most common fear prospective students have is not having enough time to take the grant writing class.

We hear you and have boiled the coursework down as tightly as possible. The program is only three modules totaling 3 hours of instructional video training. Any less and you wouldn't have everything you need to know!

Here's the deal with feeling too busy...

If you are interested in grant writing, that means you are by nature a community changemaker. Community changemakers are never NOT busy. It’s just who you are. You will always be pushing pace. 

Honestly, have you ever been like, “hmm that’s weird I don’t have anything planned! What should I do with all this free time?” Never right? 

The amount of time you will spend on one unsuccessful application is the amount of time it takes to improve your skills.

Do you have to carve out the time and prioritize your learning? YES. But you can do it! Promise, we have boiled everything down as succinctly as possible, while still getting you hands-on time and results. 

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

But you have been thinking about it for a long time right? You have something in mind you have always wanted to work on but never had the time to explore.

If not now, when? 

This is the PERFECT opportunity to carve out the time to explore that lil’ something you have always wanted to work on. Or to see if you are good at grant writing and can do something more with it. You are in a totally safe space to explore. 

Everything looks scarier from the outside. But once you jump in - even just with a baby step - you will instantly realize it’s not that bad!

Make this the year you raise your bar - push your limits a smidge - and see what you can do. Life is too short to not work on what we most care about. You are in the right place. Join us!

Nope, you don't. But...concepts stick better when you have something to work on. 

We suggest making up a sample project based on your interests or finding a local nonprofit you can research grants for. (You don't need to promise pursuing grants for them right now!)

If you aren't coming up with anything, drop us a line at [email protected] and we will send you a packet of sample projects you can choose from. These projects come from real-world projects former students of the program are working on!

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!"

We are a scrappy little Alaska-based startup! We combine the best of online e-learning with personalized coaching and a private network of grant writers to help community changemakers become grant writing unicorns. We are a woman-owned company based in Valdez, Alaska but teaching students throughout the United States and world. 

We are motivated by three main pillars:

1. To share our knowledge generously

2. To weave social impact into our fabric

3. To inspire other women to chase their dreams

We started LearnGrantWriting because nothing modern, professional, and robust existed when we were learning. 

You betcha! By the time you have finished this course, you will know what you are doing and should be recognized for your expertise. When you finish the course, we send you a hard copy and digital certificate. 

You won’t find a grant writing class like Grant Writing: From Start to Funded. We’re regularly told by past students that the class is worth much, much more than what we charge. We maintain an affordable price so that grant writing can be within reach for all. 

The grant writing course is filled with changemakers excited and COMMITTED to becoming exceptional grant writers this year. Our community is filled with passionate, helpful, motivated, and super-supportive members. They know the difference between good and great is being intentional with their time and putting in the effort.

When you join, you will be a part of this special group. You get FULL access to all modules when you purchase the grant writing class.  You will have 30 days to decide if the course is right for you. Show us that you put in the effort (watching at least Module 1 and 2), and if you are still not satisfied, we will send you a refund. Just shoot us an email at [email protected] to let us know how we could've improved your experience.

You get lifetime access! Now, that's no excuse for not getting in there and knocking out the course in about 4-6 weeks.

We provide lifetime access so you can come back to course materials when you get stuck with a future grant application.

We use every template provided, so no extra useless fluff here. When you join Grant Writing: From Start to Funded, you get access to Google Drive where we share the following templates and resources:

  • Meeting Agenda
  • Funding Research Guide
  • Funding Strategy
  • Sample Project Prospectuses
  • Checklist Template
  • Partnership Agreement
  • Letters of Support Process
  • Sample Grant Narratives
  • Grant Narrative "Skeleton"
  • Budget
  • Resolution
  • Grant Schedule
  • And a few more for good measure!

Sweet. Bring em' on! Email our team at [email protected] and we will get back to you ASAP.

To recap, Grant Writing: From Start to Funded is for you if...

  • You have been thinking about becoming a grant writer, or getting better at it, for a long time. 

    Break away from whatever is holding you back and give your ambitions a chance.
  • You find grant writing overwhelming and don't know where to start to master it.

    Wait, you don't have years and thousands of dollars worth of lost grants to learn the hard way?  You won't find a grant writing class that teaches you as much as we do, as fast as we do.
  • You're ready to make learning a priority.

    You have lifetime access to the course, so it's okay if something comes up. But...the students that become absolute unicorns, block time in their calendar to take this course and get results.  
  • You like the idea of learning being fun!

    Gone are the days of yawning through a boring workshop! We put the fun into funding! And the cheese into cheesy :)
