Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 06, 2012
Grant Central USA (GCUSA) is hosting a grant writing webinar on Thursday, August 13, 2012 at 10:30 a.m. (PST), featuring Lori Call, a veteran grant writer. The webinar will focus on several ways to develop and maintain strong relationships with grant making foundations and funders. This training is one of a series of webinars the company has offered this year.
Who has time for a grant writing webinar? You may be surprised. In today’s fast moving society it is often too hard and inconvenient for stressed out, overworked executives to leave their offices to attend a seminar. Yet continuous learning is crucial if any organization is going to continue to grow and thrive.
GCUSA is working to close the gap and develop more informed grant seekers by offering informative grant writing webinars. They offer both free and fee-based webinars allowing grant seeking organizations to hear from presidents and program officers of various foundations to gain insight which may otherwise be elusive, especially for those new to grant writing.
Several of the one-on-one exclusive interviews with philanthropic leaders are featured in GCUSA online grant writing course. Sheridan Richards admits she “thought the task of applying for grants was overwhelming. I did not know how to approach it or where to even start…I enjoy learning from people who have experience, so the interviews that this company has done with program officers and funders was helpful,” says Richards.
The full length interviews provide insight into a variety of topics, such as, common mistakes made when applying for grants and the most effective ways to host a site visit with a potential funder. Most of the grant writing webinar are between 30-45 minutes and offer helpful tidbits and nuggets to help nonprofit organizations standout from other agencies in a highly competitive grant seeking environment.
While grant writing can be a daunting task for some, GCUSA is removing much of the mystery from the process and letting new and seasoned grant writers gain valuable knowledge directly from the funders. “We wanted to create a unique opportunity for our students to hear and learn from grant makers. I remember how formative it was for me to hear from an actual grant maker as I was just starting out and we want to share this same experience with others,” says Rodney Walker, President of GCUSA.
Walker and his team trains thousands of organizations each year with their two-day grant writing workshops, retreats and online grant writing classes.
“In a time where every dollar counts, Grant Central USA has developed a brilliant service. This online training program is a valuable tool for nonprofits of all sizes. It enables organizations to apply for dollars that were previously out of reach due to time and personnel constraints,” says Jane Haderlein, Sr. Vice President, Philanthropy and Public Relations.
