According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, wage and salary jobs in advocacy, grant making, and civic organizations are projected to increase 13 percent over the 2006-16 period, compared to 11 percent growth projected for all industries combined.

Grant writing is the skill of asking for money in the form of a grant from a foundation, organization or a government agency in the form of a document. This document contains information on how the money will be used, by whom will it be used and who will undertake the tasks which are described in the proposal. Grant writing is, however, not as easy as it seems. The Grant Writing course will hone your grant writing skills.


 

Grant Writing needs a lot of research and patience. It takes time to make a plan, coordinate the plan, write, and package and submit the grant writing proposal. Persistence is the key to grant writing. The ExpertRating Grant Writing Certification course is a valuable course that will teach you the necessary tools and techniques required to enter the field of grant writing.

ExpertRating Online Grants Development Course Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

Each year, nonprofit organizations receive billions of dollars from grant-making entities. How can your organization ensure that some of this money comes into your coffers? The goal of Get Grants is just that, and this lesson will you get started. The first step in getting grants is guaranteeing that you have a fundable project. What's that? You'll find out in this lesson. We'll also talk about how to take an idea and develop it into a proposal.

Friday - Lesson 02

This lesson will provide you with the anatomy of a grant proposal. You'll learn the eight parts of a typical grant and in what order you should develop them. And then, because time is always of the essence, we'll examine how you create a workable timeline so you never frantically work on a proposal only to discover that you missed the deadline. And finally, we'll go into detail on the first part of the proposal—the introduction or, what we might call your section on bragging rights.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

Get to the heart of the proposal, or the why. The problem statement or needs assessment is where you'll be convincing the funding source why you need their support. But ah, there's a hitch: Funders don't particularly care about things you lack or things that would make you happy—they care about funding projects that address issues or resolve unmet needs that mesh nicely with their priorities. It's a tall order, but after this lesson, you'll have a very good handle on how to detect a real need and then write a concise, clear, and well-documented need statement that makes funding agencies take note.

Friday - Lesson 04

Perhaps the most confusing part of a proposal is figuring out the difference between goals and objectives. But never fear, in this lesson we'll examine the difference so that it becomes crystal clear. We'll see how these goals and objectives flow from the need statement and then flow into developing the specific measurable outcomes grant makers require. By the end of our discussion, you'll never commit the commonly made mistake of confusing activities with objectives or objectives with goals.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

Accountability. It's a word that's been cropping up more and more, especially from grantors who want to ensure that their support is being used in a meaningful way. Evaluation is another word that you hear a lot in the grant-writing world. It's the way you show the grant makers that yes, the outcomes of your project are what they want to support. Learn about evaluation types and the purposes of each of them. More to the point, by the end of the lesson you'll be able to design evaluations that clearly demonstrate how your outcomes support your goals and the goals of the funding source.

Friday - Lesson 06

In this lesson, you'll learn the methods and activities to reach your grant destination.  These activities are things that you'll be doing from the moment you receive your funding in order to reach your goal. Planning these steps can be a daunting task, but the details in the lesson would disclose the roadmap so that you never get lost. You'll also understand how to match your activities to the objectives we developed in Lesson 4. By the end of this lesson, you'll be over the hump and on your way to getting grants.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

In this lesson each of the budget categories are explained and confusing budgetary terms are explored and defined. Good models for both budget form and budget narrative are provided. These will be of immeasurable help—especially when you work on a major federal grant.

Friday - Lesson 08

Grant writers make the common mistake of overlooking two parts of the proposal- Dissemination and future funding.  These while not always required by the funding agency, are vital pieces in convincing funders that their investment in your project will be maximized.  In this lesson, you'll find out what these two parts are and how you can best present them in your proposal.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

This lesson is almost like a summary of the whole course .The emphasis is given on Query letters and pre-proposals, discussing what they are, when you use them, and how to make them effective. While wrapping up the proposal, detailed examination of successful first approaches to funding sources would be done.

Friday - Lesson 10

Okay. In this lesson you will learn how to send and fund the great grant you have written. Researching funding sources would be taught. By the end of this lesson you'll know who funds government programs and where to get the best information. You'll also know where to find out about private foundation and corporate funding.   You would be made familiar with the arcane language of guidelines and how best to extract the details you need.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Image counts. At least that's the lesson we all get from Hollywood. So, as a grant seeker, what's the image you want to present to your funding sources? That's what we'll explore in this class. The tips you'll get—including ways to assemble and package your grant—will help you present your proposal in the very best light.  Review of the supporting data you'll need and what to do after submitting your grant would be talked about in the lesson.

Friday - Lesson 12

We've talked about image. Now we'll look at how to make your proposal a star. In this lesson, writing style—what works and what doesn't would be covered. You’ll find out the seven deadly sins of grant writing and how to avoid them. And, though it may seem an odd time to do this, we'll talk about how to decide if your organization is grant ready. Finally, ethical grantsmanship would be discussed and why it's the only kind of grantsmanship you'll want to practice. By the end of this lesson—the end of this course—you'll be well-equipped to get out there and get grants!
