Event Details

When it comes to your grants success, what you don't even know you don't know CAN definitely hurt you. Ready to shed some outworn, out-of-date, but still shockingly common beliefs and misunderstandings about what it takes to be successful in the grants world today?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, grant-trainer and grant-maker Maryn Boess for this thought-provoking no-cost webinar! Get ready to bust some of the most pervasive myths about successful grant-seeking, 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. Learn more.

During the webinar you’ll get a sneak preview of GrantsMagic U’s online training program, The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint, set to begin on July 10. The Nonprofit Association of Oregon is proud to partner in this 8-session, 16-hour video-based course that shows you, step by step, how to craft an A+ grant proposal from the inside up. Registration opens June 20, with special discounted pricing for NAO members. Get a pre-opening peek here!
