Expressions Grant Writing Testimonial Quote


I take a very basic, “nuts and bolts” approach to training that has been extremely well-received for many years. I make things clear and easy to understand and give you an Action Plan so you can get started immediately upon your return to the office. Attendees regularly report that my workshops helped them where others did not and that– for the first time — they understand how to do it and won’t be so stressed next time. To date, I’ve trained more than 6,400 people.

My basic workshops include answers to topics such as these:

  • What do funders look for?
  • What are the most common proposal errors reported by funders and how do you avoid them?
  • What needs to be in your Proposal?
  • What is “boilerplate” and why do you need it?
  • How do you evaluate program success?
  • How do you develop a “funder-friendly” comprehensive budget and justification?

Tailored workshops address specific proposal sections to help attendees refine their techniques and proposals, either at basic or advanced levels. Subjects include:

  • How to Focus your Needs Statement
  • Comprehensive Program Descriptions
  • Evaluation Methodology (Goals, Objectives and Outcomes)
  • “Funder-Friendly” Budgeting for Grant Proposals
  • Improved Presentation of your Organizational Information
  • Collaborations and Why They are Important
