If you know where to go

In 2015, there were 963 grant making foundations in Alabama according to the Foundation Center. That year, only $229,406.215 in grants were awarded which left over $3.1 billion in these foundation coffers, untouched. Why? Because NO ONE applied for a grant from them. Don’t leave this money on the table. Let Ann show you how to find out who these foundations are.

I just wanted to thank you for such an awesome Intro to Grant Writing course! I left your training feeling confident, inspired and empowered to make a more profound difference in my organization AND community by helping my organization secure the funding that it needs to continue serving central Alabama. I can’t wait to share our success stories with you.

It took me two years and many services to learn what I needed. This class was very informative so unlike others I have attended which were not as information and much more expensive. Very grateful. Thank you.
Montgomery, AL
Everything was valuable to me. I liked that I felt comfortable to ask questions. Questions were welcomed and answers were given freely.

Did you know?

Often in  grant requests, applicants leave too much money on the table. Let Ann help you uncover the “secret” to knowing how much you should ask for in your proposal.

There are over 10,000 nonprofits in Alabama and over 2,500 nonprofits in the River Region. Why is this important? The more competition for grant dollars, the more important it is for your application to “shine” when it reaches the funder.(Source: Alabama Secretary of State)

A funder’s initial grant review, before passing or cutting an application for consideration, lasts 30 seconds! Would your application make the cut? (Source: Personal quote from a former Federal Grant Reviewer)

Don’t wait any longer…sign up now for Ann’s next Grant Writing Combo classes and find out how to get organized and get the edge on the nonprofit grant writing competition. Check out the home page for more details on upcoming class dates and locations.
