7 Day Challenge - Write an Easy Grant for Your Charter School

Updated: Apr 12, 2020

If you are not satisfied with the impact your school is having,

If you believe you could be doing more if you had more support,

And if you believe passionately in your school’s mission and vision and want to partner with others to achieve important goals that will create positive change in your community,

…writing a grant can be the answer.

If you have basic writing skills and can make the time to write a short grant,

If you understand that you are developing a skill that will serve your school in the long-term,

…writing a grant can be the answer.

If you recognize that clarity comes with movement,

And if you are willing to commit to taking the daily action steps in each email,

…then this challenge is for you.

I am not promising you that you will write a major grant or apply for a federal grant in 7 days.

I am saying that you can start small, build success, and learn what works for you.

You can become a Grant-Writing Leader.

What Can You Expect?

Each day, I will send you an email with a video lesson and a task. Each video is around 5 minutes long, and the task should take you 20 minutes or less. ​In 7 days, you'll know what your project is, whom you want to serve, how to choose a donor, and you’ll have a fully planned proposal for an easy grant. I will even provide a couple of simple grant applications to get you started!

You will also be invited to join our new private Facebook Group, Grants Academy, and you'll be among the first to be notified of new resources and training opportunities to support your grants program.
