…and How to Keep Them From Sabotaging Your Grant Success!

This FREE event is produced in partnership with GrantsMagic U, the Nonprofit Network of Southwest Washington. and Washington Nonprofits. Registration is on the GrantsMagic U page.


When it comes to your grants success, what you don’t even know you don’t know CAN definitely hurt you. Ready to shed 3 outworn, out-of-date, but still shockingly common beliefs and misunderstandings about what it takes to be successful in the grants world today? They’re called “invisible beliefs” – those things we think we know, without even thinking about it. Maybe they were true once upon a time, but many simply aren’t true any more. And the problem is, because they’re invisible, those beliefs that are no longer true can slow us down – and sabotage our success – without our even realizing what’s happening.

Join veteran grant writer, grants trainer and grantmaker Maryn Boess for this thought-provoking free live online training, get ready to bust three of the most pervasive myths about successful grantseeking, and leave with a ton of brand-new, specific, down-to-earth tools and action steps for making sure these invisible beliefs never sabotage your grants success again.

SNEAK PREVIEW: During the webinar you’ll get a sneak preview of Maryn’s brand-new online training program, The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint, set to debut Oct. 12. NAO is proud to partner in this series of eight 90-minute training videos that show you, step by step, how to craft a stellar grant proposal from the inside up. Registration opens Sept. 16, with special discounted pricing for NAO members. For complete details and to register, click here!
