See What Others Are Saying 

"I just wanted to say thank you for your 3 part webinar I was part of for Writing a Winning Grant! I was actually writing for a grant during the time of the webinar and was able to apply some of the tips to the application! We wrote for $10,000 and were awarded $5,000 which was HUGE! Definitely sent a follow up thank you to the funder, and wanted to say thank you to YOU for doing that webinar and helping our agency win a grant!"

-Liz G.

"Robin covered a lot of ground in 4.5 hours. I honestly can't suggest improvements. Content and presentation was excellent"

"Favorite Part: Logic model and process sequence. Also the "pre-grant" work"

-Richard B.

"Favorite part: Biggest takeaway is building a need statement. We have that but not fully fleshed out. We usually build it for each grant. I think we can be more consistent about it. I like the presenter's cadence. I stayed engaged."

"Again, Robin's cadence was great and she had good verbal examples."

"Favorite part: Breaking down the areas that need to be organized. I usually approach grants based on what the application asks for but I should be more methodical and consistent across applications."

-Beth S.

"Favorite part: How we need strong leaders."

-Kristina K.
