It was wonderful learning from someone who not only understands where to find resources and how to fill out a grant application, but how to navigate the relationships and develop those when pursuing a grant.

A great crash course in grantwriting for novice to intermediate grantwriters who need a kick in the butt to get out there and write!

Open, honest, and sincere information shared. It’s clear that Allison has a history, passion, and dedication for grantwriting.
— Past Participant
She was indeed excellent. Never got ruffled or stumped (and that is exceptional) and controlled the group well in terms of getting some to wait their turn when they interrupted, though usually they didn’t mean to, but, nevertheless, she managed the situations deftly.
