The ExpertRating Online Grants Proposal Writing Course (Basic)
(leading to ExpertRating Grant Proposals Writing Certification-Basic).

Preparing successful grant proposals to receive funding from corporations or foundations requires careful research, meticulous preparation, and graceful writing. Grant administrators tell us that many grant requestors have no real understanding of the proposal writing process and as a result, their worthy causes lose out.

If you learn how to avoid the errors that lead to the rejection of your proposal, you will be better prepared to help the causes you most admire. This course will walk you through all of the essential steps--including an important discussion of what you must do when the grant arrives!

In this course, you’ll learn how to become fully familiar with the institution or project for which you are requesting support. You’ll get valuable guidance in preparing a background statement and a brief financial statement to support your request. You’ll also research some charitable foundation and corporate giving sources.

Then, you'll learn how to put everything together so you can assemble, write, and submit complete grant proposals to foundations, corporations, and wealthy individuals for any number of your pet projects.

According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, turnover and employment growth in the grant making industry should result in a large number of job openings.

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 Proposal Writing Course (Basic) Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

There’s nothing magical about preparing a grant request, but in this lesson, you’ll learn some easy and fun tricks of the trade that will help you with all sorts of writing projects, even those beyond grant proposals. And you’ll learn special ways to practice these tricks!

Friday - Lesson 02

Those of us who work for causes we think are important care about them in a very special way, usually a rather subjective one. But grantors who deal with literally thousands of institutions and causes have a rather different way of thinking about them. In this lesson, you’ll put yourself in their shoes. And in the process, you’ll learn a great way to describe your own cause to anyone.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

Now that you’ve tried on your grantor’s shoes, let's talk about why those grantors look for certain kinds of information and documents. You’ll learn what these documents are so you can dig them out and be ready to supply them when you prepare a grant request.

Friday - Lesson 04

There are lots of interesting things to know about each individual nonprofit organization, but all nonprofits share one thing: they're not in it to for the money! We all know that you can measure a good business by its bottom line—whether it makes money or not. But how do you measure the effectiveness of a nonprofit organization that needs money? In this lesson, we’ll start to look into it.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

The hunt for funding sources is the eternal game of hide and seek that we all play in this business. How do you find sources that might be appropriate for you? It’s a game that we can play in a library or on the web, but the web makes it easiest! This lesson will point you towards the most effective research tools available.

Friday - Lesson 06

Once you find some foundations that you think might be a good fit for your cause, how do you choose among a field that might include hundreds? In this lesson, we’ll discuss ways to sift through these foundations, and in the course of this process, we may unearth sources you haven’t even considered!

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

 It is necessary to consider both charitable foundations and corporations that fit your cause. Corporations have foundations and also other ways of giving.  In this lesson, packaging   projects for corporations is discussed vividly with details on approaching   the corporate foundation.

Friday - Lesson 08

For those of you who are ‘word people’, you’ll learn another way to tell your story—let the numbers do the talking! People reviewing your proposals will attach great importance to numbers, so you can’t get away with simply describing a project with words. In this lesson, we’ll discuss ways of preparing numbers effectively. It’s not hard to do, and it’s essential to the success of your proposal.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

By the time you reach this lesson, you’ll have all the pieces you need for your proposal. In this lesson, your proposal will be fine-tuned. It would be given the finishing touches so you can finally put a complete proposal in the mail.

Friday - Lesson 10

Everyone knows that you can’t win ‘em all! But when you do get a turndown, there are positive alternatives to doom and gloom. The suggestions in this lesson will help you deal with those inevitable turndowns.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Okay, just as you hoped—you did get a gift! There’s an old saying in this business: Every gift paves the way to the next. In this lesson, it will be made sure you know just how to pave that road!

Friday - Lesson 12

Now that you have all the elements you need for your proposal, can you also send it across to the concerned individuals? Well, not really—at least not the whole thing. You need to think about what would interest those individuals and how you can best present it to them. That’s what we'll cover in the final lesson of this course.
