Grantseeking Academy at Compton Gardens


More and more non-profits need to win grant funds to achieve their mission, but the skills needed to be successful at grantseeking are different from other fundraising or writing skills. If you are serious about winning grants, you need to learn practice the skills that will help you find the right grants for your agency.

The Grantseeking Academy is an intensive, hands-on learning experience. You attend the Academy 2 hours per week over six weeks so that you have time to digest what you’re learning and begin putting it into practice back at your agency. You receive an easy-to-read textbook, have homework, and receive one-on-one mentoring from professional grant writers.

You will learn essential information about obtaining grants, and you will practice writing
