The subject of grants is largely misunderstood. Contrary to what the media and non-informed people will have you believe, becoming grant ready is not an overnight process.
Who needs training?
Almost everyone’s job in the non-profit sector require some understanding of fund development.

“For some reason, I am only allowed to pick three attributes for this recommendation in the section above. Allison is a wonderful professional to work for several reasons. Allison is amazing at working independently and yet she is also highly effective at pulling several people together, brainstorming, and creating an output for everyone to see immediately. She is a person with high standards for herself and her work. Allison is also a genuine and caring person, who listens to what others want to accomplish and pitches in to achieve that result. I enjoyed working with Allison and I am happy to see her success continue in her role as an independent writer.”
