Event Description

The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint: Your Step by Step Roadmap and Build-It-Yourself Toolkit for Crafting an A+ Proposal

Maryn Boess, Founder, GrantsMagic U

Every week starting June 18, you’ll get access to a new training video of about 2 hours each, plus detailed handouts and resource materials. Because this is an on-demand program, once a session has been released, you and your team can watch at any time, on your own schedule.

Here’s the agenda:

Part A. Starting Right Where You Are – Right Now (Session 1, released June 18)

The first week is all about meeting you right where you are – wherever you’re starting out - and getting you ramped up and ready for the journey ahead.

  • You’ll start by “packing your travel bag” – getting you grounded in the powerful concepts and paradigms you’ll be exploring – the very big big-picture thinking at the heart of “The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint.”
  • Next, you’ll get your first look at the framework you’ll be working with. You’ll take a high flyover of our “Blueprint” territory and start exploring the key tools, processes, and ideas that will support you on your journey.

Part B: Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint, Unpacked (Sessions 2-7).

For the next six weeks you’ll be taking a deep dive, one at a time, into each of the key sections of your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint. Working with the framework laid out in Part A, you’ll work with checklists, planning tools, formulas, and fill-in-the-blanks templates that guide you step by step through exactly how to shape the details that bring your project to life and create a clear, compelling proposal. Remember, once a session has been released you can watch it any time, on your own schedule.

  • Session 2: The Issue, Need, or Opportunity (released June 25)
  • Session 3: Impact Outcomes (released July 2)
  • Session 4: Work Plan/Partnership (released July 9)
  • Session 5: Evaluation (released July 16)
  • Session 6: The Proposal Budget (released July 23)
  • Session 7: The Summary/The Credibility Statement (released July 30)

Part C: Turning Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint . . . into an A+ Proposal (Session 8, released Aug. 6).

This final session covers how to transform your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint into an A+ proposal that matches the requirements of any given funder. You’ll cover the elements of good writing; what to think about when making formatting decisions; how to “read” an RFP; things to think about when working with an online proposal submission; and much more.

Live Q&A Call-Ins:

As part of your course, you're invited to take part in 3 live conference-call Q&A sessions with Maryn, where you, your team members, and your fellow students can get on-the-ground answers to all your questions about grants, grantseeking, grantmaking . . . you name it.

These one-hour sessions are exclusively for you and the other nonprofit teams participating in this Blueprint course.
