We have built the Successful Grants Stewardship webinar series around the principles, tools, and strategies of grantsmanship essentials. Not to be confused with a beginning grantsmanship or Grants 101-type program, these are rigorous, content-rich sessions designed for grants novices and veterans alike. The series will show you a new, powerful way to think about your role in the grants field; new, powerful strategies for organizing and managing a successful grants effort; and new, powerful tools for winning corporation, foundation, and government dollars to support your organization’s work.
Maryn Boess is a 2013 CFRE Approved Provider for Continuing Education. Participation in all eight 90-minute sessions of Successful Grants Stewardship is applicable for 12.0 points in Category 1.B—Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification. Individual sessions are applicable for 1.5 points each.
