The grants process can be time-consuming, labor intensive, harried and overwhelming.
Learning about them doesn’t have to be, especially if you are learning approaches and strategies designed to simplify and streamline the process.
On June 2 and 3, iCohere will host The Grants Game Intensive. The training is a two-part webinar series covering everything that you will encounter in the grant writing process, from finding the money to cashing the check.
The event is hosted by DAVID JAMIESON, a 30-year grant writing veteran who has helped clients generate over $60 million in grant revenue, including $41,000,000 in government grants and $20,000,000 in foundation and corporate funding.
David has helped organizations find and raise grant funding for nearly every conceivable purpose, including startup costs, new services and expansions, capacity building, education and training projects, capital funding, major construction, research, planning and collaboration. He has specialized in major projects involving multiple sources of funding.
This is the first online offering of the Grants Game process, which David has previously offered in live seminars and workshops throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The back-to-back, one-hour sessions air June 2 and 3 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EST. Register today for a special price of $29.00. Recorded archives will be available after the training, and all attendees receive ongoing access to the iCohere Academy and its comprehensive library of resources.

Part Two: The Proposal Letter-Your Elevator Pitch in Print…and more.
The Proposal Letter (Letter of Intent, Letter of Inquiry) is the most important piece of writing you will develop, both for the doors it opens and the foundation it provides for your full proposal going forward. We’ll cover key questions you need to answer, such as:
- Why is this Issue Important? What is the Need for it?
- Who Are You? Why should your organization be the one to do this project? What makes you unique?
- The Grant Project-How are you going to use the money? What Best Practices are you using?
- Outcomes and Deliverables-What will this project accomplish? How will you measure success?
- Following Up-What’s the Response?
- Converting the Letter Proposal to a Full Proposal
- You got the grant! What’s next?
Come prepared to learn and to ask questions. Part two of the training includes a giveaway. Five attendees will have the opportunity for a twenty minute consultation with David Jamieson on the grant topic of your choice.
