Questions Asked Before Saying "Heck Yes!"

The most common fear prospective students have is not having enough time to take the grant writing class. You’re busy. We get it! For that reason, we boiled the coursework down as tightly as possible.

You can Netflix binge and get through course content in one week. Most take their time to apply lessons learned on a real-world project, which requires 4-8 weeks. When going this route, students spend 2-3 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 get 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!

Nope, you don't. But...concepts stick better when you have a real-world project. 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 to pursue grants for them right now!)

Otherwise, when you introduce yourself in our private grant writing community group, we can help connect you with others looking for help with their projects.

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!"

Absolutely! By the time you have finished this course, you will know what you are doing and should be recognized for your expertise. When you complete Grant Writing: From Start to Funded, we send you a certificate to provide your employer or include on your LinkedIn profile.

You will not find a grant writing class like Grant Writing: From Start to Funded. Past students regularly tell us 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.

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 by watching at least Module 1 and 2, and if you are still not satisfied, we will send you a refund. Just send us an email at info@senworks.org 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 4-8 weeks. We provide lifetime access so you can come back to course materials if you get stuck with a future grant application. You also have access to our private Facebook community group to ask questions, share successes, and get feedback from professional grant writing coaches.

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 Template
  • Sample Project Prospectuses
  • Grant Checklist Template
  • Partnership Agreement
  • Letters of Support Templates
  • Sample Grant Narratives
  • Grant Narrative Skeleton
  • Grant Budget Template
  • Resolution Template
  • Grant Schedule
  • And a few more for good measure!

“I hope to learn the skills and knowledge needed to be a grant writing unicorn! In more detail, I look forward to learning about the grant writing process: how to find grants, how to find the right programs that need the money, and how best to use my writing skills to connect the two together. I'd be thrilled to have a job where I feel like what I do is improving our world and our society. My hope is that being a freelance grant writer will make me feel that way.”
