Frequently Asked Questions

I'm a beginning or intermediate-level grantwriter. What class should I take?

Essential Grantwriting is perfect for both beginning and intermediate-level grantwriters. It does cover some the basic terminology to get everyone on the same page, but the class is very fast-paced. Intermediate-level grantwriters report that they appreciated the quick refreshers and that the content quickly became more advanced for those wanted to dive deeper. Proposal Writing provides the opportunity for all levels of participants to have a day of writing to refine their grant application.

Do you offer a discount for groups or any other discounts?

I offer an early bird discount of $20 off the class when you register at least two weeks prior to the class. Groups of 3 or more from any one organization may receive an additional discount of $10 off per person. To register as a group, please use this link.

What should I bring to class?

For Essential Grantwriting, you should bring a pen or pencil. I will provide a comprehensive workbook. For Proposal Writing, you should bring a laptop or pad of paper and pencil as you will spend a large portion of the day writing your proposal. It is helpful if you also bring background/reference materials about your organization and program/project. For Freelance Grantwriting, you should bring a pen or pencil. I will provide a comprehensive workbook.

In what locations do you teach grantwriting classes?

I'm interested in teaching grantwriting anywhere in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. Currently, classes are offered in Seattle, Portland, Yakima, Spokane, Wenatchee, Aberdeen, Bellingham, Olympia, Bremerton, and Bainbridge Island. Most locations offer classes twice per year.

How can my organization sponsor a class?

I whole-heartedly welcome sponsorship. It can take the form of providing space to host a class, providing help in getting the word out about the class through your organization's local network, or providing a cash contribution to offset the cost. In return, your organization's name and logo will appear on all marketing materials and class materials. For more information, please email me.
