Event Description


Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint Course: Your Step by Step Roadmap and Built It Yourself Toolkit for Crafting an A+ Grant Proposal 

Maryn Boess, Founder, GrantsMagic U

Part A: Start Right Where You Are – Right Now
Session 1 – Feb. 25
This first session 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.

  • We begin by “packing your travel bag” – getting you grounded in the powerful concepts and paradigms we’ll be exploring together – the very big big-picture thinking at the heart of The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint

Part B: Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint, Unpacked
Session 2-1, March 4 – April 8
Over these six sessions you’ll be taking a deep dive, one at a time, into each of the key sections of your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint – each of the Essential Planning Questions. 

Building on the framework we 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.

Part C: Turning Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint … into an A+ Proposal
Session 8, April 15
This final session covers how to transform your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint into an A+ proposal that matches the requirements of any given funder. 

We’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, much more.

Area of Nonprofit Excellence – Resource Development

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.
