The Grant Writing System

A fun and authoritative system to writing winning grants Grant funding be magical. The money you secure from funding sources can literally change the lives of people in a community, improve conservation efforts, or enable the rendition of a Shakespeare play. Literally, when it comes to grants the world is your oyster. But the ability to win grants is more than just making a weak impression or sending out the same two-page letter to 100 different funding sources. Believe me, writing grants DOES NOT HAVE to be akin to the following*: The accountant writing a novel The novelist filing taxes The introvert giving a speech in a bikini The Siamese cat going for a swim *Of course, these are all terrible stereotypes and I apologize as your cat may in fact enjoy the breaststroke while wearing cute speedos. Please hashtag me if that does happen. Hey, if you actually follow the system in this course, you may even have a master grant written by the end. How cool is that? There’s even an accompanying free, Amazon Bestselling e-Book, video-series and templates galore to go along with this course
