• Before you sign up for The Grantwriter's Well, please watch this short video below

     

    It might seem a bit odd for me to ask you to pause and slow down before you sign up, but that’s just what I’d like to invite you to do.

     

    For what's included, and compared to other grantwriting courses, The Grantwriter's Well is inexpensive.

     

    But it’s still your time and money - and those are our most precious resources.

     

    If you’re like me, when you know you want something you skim through long sales letters (like the one you just came from!) and that means there’s a good chance you missed some important bits. So I'd like to you to go back and read it in full because it matters to me that you know what the course entails and it feels right the right fit for you.

     

    Or, if you’re pretty sure it’s a fit, the following points are the most important things to give a quick review.

     

    After reading the following carefully, I invite to just take a moments to sit with it - close your eyes, take a few breaths, and see if this is the right time and the right action for you. If The Grantwriter's Well still feels like a fit for you, I’ll love having you in the course.

     

    If not, I wish you the best in finding just what is right for you and your nonprofit in developing your skills

    .

    And, if timing is the only issue, then I hope I might get to see you at a future Grantwriter's Well.

     

    And, if you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email at the link below and ask me anything you like.

  • This course is for you if

    • You have great ideas and are committed to getting them funded and just need some support and guidance
    • You are ABLE and WILLING to spend 5+ hours a week for 8 weeks putting what you have learned into action
    • You’ve been procrastinating and second-guessing yourself about writing grant proposals for far too long and are ready to take action
    • You are capable of (kind) self-discipline because you’ll need to sit yourself down and get the work done.
    • You are determined to create positive social, environmental and economic change in the world and know that you can do it with the right support
    • You’re comfortable with and enjoy meditations, yoga, connecting in sacred space and talking about our inherent oneness. You’re the kind of person who heads off on retreat every once is in a while – or would like to.
    • You’ll need to be on facebook and comfortable with computers That they will have to cut services or lay off employees and cut services
    • You're drawn to spirituality and believe that we all have a deep reservoir of eternal wisdom inside of us
  • Who this course is not for

    • You have years of grantwriting success under your belt (I have other programs that might be better suited to you).

    • You don’t have 5 hours a week to put into the course – and 16 hours during weeks 6 & 7

    • I’m a progressive liberal inspired by radical reimagining of our world as place that supports EVERYONE - if you’re offended by that then this isn’t the course for you

    • If you don’t have an organization that you are working with or a project in mind, you’ll struggle to get the most out of this course

    • You don’t have internet access, facebook etc.

    • You can’t be on any of the live calls (see below)

    • You hold fundamental religious beliefs that don't allow you to expand into new experiences and ideas

    • You’re not strong at self-motivation and self-discipline since you will need those to keep yourself on track to do the coursework between live sessions. Like anything in life – you’ll get what you put into this course.

  • FAQ

    How much time will it take?

    The course will require 3-6 hours per week plus 8-10 hours in weeks 6 & 7. I understand this is a huge time commitment for most people - but I guarantee you that I’ll do my absolute best to make it worth your time and give you the skills that you’ll be able to use for years to come.

    It sounds great but I don’t have the money?

    I understand that non-profit budgets are always tight. So, I'm offering this course with an installment option in which you pay over 3 months.

     

    And, I also have a LOT of free resources on my main grant writing page www.grantschampion.com and my book is offered on a gift basis at www.grantwritingrevealed.com.

     

    I don’t have project to work on – will this be useful?

    Not really, if you don’t know a program or project very well.

     

    If it’s online, how much interaction do I get with you?

    • I’ve designed and all the course materials and videos etc are imbibed it with the best of my experience.

    • We’ll also have a live 90 minute call each week where we can talk through what you’re working on and get feedback from me and your peers.

    Do you offer CFRE credits?

    Not at this time.

     

    You talk about the sacred - is this religious?

    No, it’s not. I do not adhere to any religion and respect all of them that empower people to be be more loving. I believe that we all share a common root that is loving, expansive and peaceful - what all religions point to. The course includes some non-denominational meditations intended to bring us present to this sense of the sacred. I’ve found that most people find them relaxing, grounding and peaceful - and religious fundamentalists don’t like it.

     

  • The Cost & Guarantee

    This is only the second time that I have offered this online version. Given that, I'm offering it at a really affordable price for the nonprofit community realizing that there may be a slight kink or two to be worked through.

     

    There are 20 spaces in the course and 6 are already filled.

     

    The next time that I offer it in September 2018, it will likely be in the $950 range.

     

    I am offering a sliding scale: Please choose the category that has integrity for you.

     

    Non-profits with revenue < $300k/year and individual students = $850

    Non-profits with revenue < $1M/year and individuals = $950

    Non-profits with revenue > $1M = $1095

     

    I’M OFFERING A FULL PAYMENT OPTION

     

    or

     

    THREE INSTALLMENT OPTION (this costs 2% more because the credit card processing company charges an additional fee)

     

     

    Deadline

    The deadline for course registration is midnight on March 15th.

    EARLY BIRD BONUS: REGISTER BY March 1st

    I’m also offering a bonus of a 45-minute one-to-one coaching session for everyone who signs up for this offer by midnight on March 1st. You can use this at any time – during the course or months afterwards when you need advice on moving your project forward or in another direction. I don’t offer this an option very often and when I do, I charge $300 an hour so this is a really nice bonus to receive.

    GUARANTEE

    I know you may still not be sure about this, especially if you haven’t worked with me before. And I understand that it’s an investment of both your time, money and life force to take this course - and the potential downside is that you’ll put time into this and it won’t be a fit for you.

     

    I’d like to take the risk off of you and onto myself. If you sign up for the course, do all of the exercises, and attend 90% of the live calls and are not completely satisfied, just let me know and I’ll refund your payment and make a $100 donation to your non-profit (or one of your choosing) in addition.

     

    To say that another way: you are guaranteed to raise at least $100 from this program.
