The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint Virtual Video Series
 Summer 2019

An Eight Session, Self-Paced, Online Video Course
June 17 - August 5


Learn grantwriting from a grantmaker – online – at your own pace – and with your team!

Kentucky Nonprofit Network 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 course, 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 what you get with this course:

In eight fast-paced, information-rich video sessions totaling about 16 hours (released every Monday June 17-Aug. 5):

• You'll learn step by step how to build a solid, fundable proposal from the inside out and the bottom up
• You'll work with a unique set of tried-and-tested planning tools, worksheets, roadmaps, checklists, and step-by-step, fill-in-the-blanks templates to make your proposals clear, concise, complete, coherent - and compelling
• You'll learn literally hundreds of "insider's tips" from grantmakers and successful grantseeking organizations that you can put to work for your organization - right away
• And you'll learn how to organize the details of your work in a way guaranteed to take you to the next level of grantseeking success - no matter where you're starting out

Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint course comes packed with everything you need for success inside the course ... and beyond, as you continue putting what you learn to work for your nonprofit community.

• First, starting June 17, you’ll get 8 weekly video training sessions of about 2 hours each, that you can view any time, on your own schedule and as often as you like.
• The video course is carefully sequenced to guide you step by step and section by section through what it takes to build an A+ grant proposal - every single time.  
• You’ll get a detailed session-by-session printable workbook and resource guide to follow along with as you watch the videos . . . and to keep at your desktop in the months ahead as an at-your-fingertips reference.
• You’ll get nearly 100 planning guides, checklists and step-by-step, fill-in-the-blanks templates to help you capture, organize, and articulate your good thinking - in digital form - that you can save to your own computer and use again . . . and again . . . and again . . .
• You’ll get lots of real-life samples of "what works" - what wins grants - that you can borrow, virtually word for word, for your own projects.
• You’ll get 3 live group Q&A sessions with Maryn, where you can get on-the-ground answers to all your questions about grants, grantseeking, grantmaking . . . you name it.
• And you’ll get ongoing personal support, via an "Ask Anything" Facebook community page, to help make sure you're on track for a successful experience inside the course - and beyond.


8-session course schedule:

Every Monday starting June 17, you’ll get access to a new training video of about 2 hours each, plus detailed handouts and resource materials. Because this is an on-demand program, once a session has been released, you and your team can watch at any time, on your own schedule.

Here’s the agenda:

Part A. Starting Right Where You Are – Right Now (Session 1, released June 17)

The first week 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.

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


• Next, you’ll get your first look at the framework you’ll be working with. You’ll take a high flyover of our “Blueprint” territory and start exploring the key tools, processes, and ideas that will support you on your journey.


Part B: Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint, Unpacked (Sessions 2-7). 

For the next six weeks you’ll be taking a deep dive, one at a time, into each of the key sections of your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint. Working with the framework 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. Remember, once a session has been released you can watch it any time, on your own schedule.

• Session 2: The Issue, Need, or Opportunity (released June 24)
• Session 3: Impact Outcomes (released July 1)
• Session 4: Work Plan/Partnership (released July 8)
• Session 5: Evaluation (released July 15)
• Session 6: The Proposal Budget (released July 22)
• Session 7: The Summary/The Credibility Statement (released July 29)


Part C: Turning Your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint . . . into an A+ Proposal (Session 8,released Aug. 5). 

This final session covers how to transform your Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint into an A+ proposal that matches the requirements of any given funder. You’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 more.

Live Q&A Call-Ins:

As part of your course, you're invited to take part in 3 live conference-call Q&A sessions with Maryn, where you, your team members and your fellow students can get on-the-ground answers to all your questions about grants, grantseeking, grantmaking.  These one-hour sessions are exclusively for you and the other nonprofit teams participating in this Blueprint course.
