More Grantsmanship! The full notice posted below:
The Grantsmanship Center’s signature Grantsmanship Training Program is coming to Boston, Massachusetts, March 17-21, 2008. The program will be hosted by Action for Boston Community Development (ABCD).
The Grantsmanship Training Program is a comprehensive, hands-on workshop that covers the complete grant development process, from researching funding sources to writing and reviewing grant proposals. More than 100,000 nonprofit and government personnel have attended this fast-paced, five-day workshop, which is followed with a full year of membership support services.
During this workshop, participants learn The Grantsmanship Center’s proposal-writing format, the most widely used in the world. In addition to practicing advanced techniques for pursuing government, foundation, and corporate grants, participants work in small teams to develop and then review real grant proposals.
Participants exit the class equipped with new skills, new professional connections, and follow-up support services for one year, including professional proposal review, access to The Grantsmanship Center’s exclusive online funding databases, and an array of other benefits. Many also leave with proposals that are ready to polish and submit.
Tuition for the Grantsmanship Training Program is $875 ($825 for each additional registrant from the same organization).
To ensure personalized attention, class size is limited to 30 participants.

If you’re wondering why the Grantsmanship Training Program is five days (when other grantwriting classes are shorter)…
· The Grantsmanship Training Program is not a quick overview of “grantwriting.”
· The Grantsmanship Training Program is an intensive, small-group, total-immersion workshop that covers funding research, program planning and proposal writing.
· By integrating program planning into our curriculum when we first created grantsmanship training, The Grantsmanship Center anticipated the increased demand by grantmakers for more accountability, smarter programming, and a stronger, more demonstrable return on granted funds.
· Grantsmanship Training Program participants prepare and critique real grant proposals under expert guidance during the class.
· You can’t get this quality of in-depth training, personal attention and hands-on experience in a two-, three- or even a four-day workshop!
