KNN is proud to partner again with GrantsMagic U to bring you The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint: Your Step-By-Step Roadmap and Build-It-Yourself Toolkit for Crafting an A+ Proposal. In this comprehensive, on-your-own-schedule video-based program, veteran grant writer, grant consultant, and grantmaker Maryn Boess pulls back the curtain on what it really takes to be successful in the grants world and shares hundreds of tried-and-tested tools, strategies, how-to's and "insider's tips" to take you to your next level of grants success - no matter where you're starting out.
Here’s a summary of what you and your team get when you sign up:
Your complete 10-session program schedule - What to expect, and when:
Part A. Starting Right Where You Are - Right Now - (Session 1, released Mar. 16)
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 - (Sessions 2-7, released Mar. 23 - Apr. 27)
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.
Session 2 (Mar. 23): What's the Problem? - Crafting a Statement of Issue, Need, or Opportunity that's Clear, Compelling - and Completely Irresistible.
Session 3 (Mar. 30): Impact Outcomes: Where Do We Want to End Up? or, Let's Visit Emerald City!
Apr. 6: Get It Done Week / Students-Only Q&A Call
Session 4 (Apr. 13): Work Plan/Partnership: ... How Will We Get from Where We Are to Where We Want to Be?
Session 5 (Apr. 20): The Essential Evaluation Toolkit: How Are We Doing . . . and Why Does It Matter, Anyway?
Session 6 (Apr. 27): Building an Unbreakable Project Budget - Guaranteed!
May 4: Get It Done Week / Students-Only Q&A Call
Session 7 (May 11): The Summary – What’s This All About – Quickly? – and The Credibility Statement: Who Are We and Why Should Anyone Trust Us?
Part C. Turning Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint ... into an A+ Proposal (Session 8, released May 18)
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.
