Grant Planning & Management ~ System and ToolKit
The Tools You Need
Get all the tools you need for planning your current and future grant funding in our one-of-a-kind Strategic Grant Planning Toolkit, designed to guide you in strategically planning your grant funding campaign for three, five, or more years in the future.
Choose which funders to approach now, which later, which for capital funding, and which for programs using our proprietary Excel Planning Tools. Enter as many funders, projects and criteria as you need and use this tool to help choose, eliminate and prioritize grant applications. Other forms help you track funding received and other information needed to complete applications. There are forms to help track the status of any campaign, funds received and funds yet needed, and forms to keep you on track, so you never miss a deadline. There’s really so much more…
Track your eligibility for grants, status of applications, amounts awarded, which grants match your needs, and even track donors in our FileMaker Pro database. Included are dozens of fields to enter funders, categories, purposes, deadlines, dates submitted, dates and amounts awarded, next-eligible dates, goal matches, and just about anything that you would want to track.
And if you don’t happen to have the FileMaker Pro software, you can always use the Excel Spreadsheet for this purpose.
And a Simple System
Grant planning with the Stress-Free Strategic Grant Planning, & Management Toolkit also provides an internal grant proposal process, a system that keeps your submission on track while eliminating the stress that usually goes with trying to meet the submission deadline. With this course, you’ll submit long before the deadline, and every submission will be flawless.
If you’re new to grant writing, but would like to learn how easily you can enter this field (grant writers are in high demand), it’s easier than you think to learn this writing skill. You can’t get a better education for $39 than to purchase Bob Bly’s “How to Break Into the Lucrative Freelance Grant Writing Market”. This book is a complete ‘how to’ showing you everything you need to know to begin your career as a grant writer.
Combine that knowledge with our tools for planning a grant funding campaign and you’ll look like a seasoned and well-prepared pro the day you approach your first employer.
Grant Writer’s Stress-Free Strategic Planning & Management ToolKit is available in online video format, or home study format which combines this course plus the Grant Readiness and CQI courses, mentioned below. This video course includes all the downloads in our original course plus updated forms, a course textbook, lifetime access to the online course and a discussion panel where I can answer your question directly or you can interact with other students. The other two courses, included in the home study course, are available as separate video courses. See the links below.
This is the ideal set of tools to make your NPO more competitive. It’s also the perfect set of tools to aid any independent grant writer. Think of how you’ll impress your NPO clients when you tell them you have a complete program to manage and plan their grant funding, and one that will improve their operations at the same time. This course includes the complete strategic planning course. Sold separately are the Win More Grants by Becoming Grant Ready course, and the CQI/TQM for the Rest of Us course.
As with all of our programs, your purchase gives you lifetime access to the course, and is 100% refundable within 30 days. No questions asked.
You can enroll in the combination course, which includes all three courses. Titled “Stress-Free Strategic Grant Readiness, Planning and Management“. You’ll get a $10 discount by enrolling in this course.
