If you’re anything like us, you hate feeling like you don’t know how to help your organization get the grant funding it needs. And some grant opportunities are confusing, and federal RFPs can be downright frustrating. As grant writers, we used to hate that feeling too, and that’s why we created two ways for you to become a grant hero for your organization.
This fall, the Talent Academy for grant professionals kicks off in August and runs through mid-December. The deadline to apply is June 30 and space is extremely limited for this popular program. In the Talent Academy, you will attend weekly seminars with a cohort of like-minded peers, build connections among organizations, hear from guest speakers including funders, complete projects that help you do your work better, and grow in your professional and leadership development potential.
If a four-month fellowship isn’t for you, join us for #GetTheGrantNM, a three day workshop from July 17 – 19 at the United Way of Central New Mexico training center. At #GetTheGrantNM, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of grant seeking from grant professionals and trainers with decades of experience working for New Mexico based organizations. You’ll receive hands-on guidance through project-based learning, interactive exercises, and a customized workbook to use and refer to as you work on future grant proposals. And the workshop ends with a panel of funders that represent a community foundation, corporate foundation, state agency, and federal agency.
In both of these programs, you will also receive a one year membership to The Grants Collective Cooperative Network – where you are part of a community of grant professionals and can receive peer and expert advice, access to our database of hand-curated funding opportunities for New Mexico organizations, and free attendance at select future events. We think once you see how many resources are all in one place, you’ll feel more confident and better networked with like-minded peers. No more fear of missing out. No more feeling alone and stuck behind your computer screen.
We can’t wait for you to join us in the Talent Academy or at #GetTheGrantNM.
Most nonprofits struggle with getting grants and they’re tired of chasing money. It shouldn’t be this hard. So we created a process that helps them find funding, get grants, and connect to a network. This gives their organizations the money they need to make our communities strong.
