Here’s a hint: This course shows you how to leverage Artificial Intelligence and online tools to make yourself a better grant writer.
Getting funding made easier.
This course focuses on the foundational to advanced grant writing skills and knowledge. We go beyond the basics to teach you what grant reviewers at all levels are looking for.
This isn’t just a grant readiness course. This is a workshop where you will create an application in real time for a federal, state, or local competition. You choose your own adventure.

Empowering you to go beyond grant writing. This course teaches you to write grants, implement them effectively, and sustain your work.
Each week a pre-recorded lesson is available on Sundays.
Live sessions are held Thursdays via Zoom.
Develop A Grant Proposal in Just 8 Weeks
Course participants will write their own grant proposals by writing and developing a portion of the proposal application they are working on as homework.
Participants should be prepared to use critical thinking and writing skills to stay on schedule with each module.
“What sets you apart is your ability to share a wealth of unique strategies, tips, and insights that I believe most grant writers wouldn’t know.”
To be successful in this course, participants are asked to commit to a weekly schedule throughout the 8 weeks.
The weekly schedule requires study time, a live lesson, and a recorded video lesson.
Sunday: Weekly lesson released
Thursday: Live Zoom session 7-8:30 pm ET
Weekly homework assignments due Thursday 8 am ET
You are only encouraged to apply to this course if you can commit up to 12 hours per week to:
Live 90-minute Weekly Sessions
Weekly 90-minute live sessions share more complex and deeper knowledge about the theme. These sessions augment the material shared in the weekly sessions and offer a chance for questions & answers on the spot.
Course participants report back on homework assignments and demonstrate progress with the course during live sessions. Replays of missed sessions are available.
Recorded Video Lessons
Weekly recorded video lessons teach core concepts of grant writing and are essential to the learning experience. Participants are expected to watch the video lesson prior to attending the weekly live session.
Recorded videos are released each Sunday and must be watched by Thursday’s session.
Weekly homework reinforces core concepts, helps identify questions, and is how participants apply the knowledge in real time. Each week your homework assignments help you build a grant application template to use in the future.
Participants are required to commit to the time it will take to do the homework each week.

Meet Your Instructor- Wendie Veloz
Hi, I’m Wendie Veloz, I’m a Social Impact Strategist, coach, and consultant with over 15 years of experience in social services. I am passionate about helping organizations and individuals make a positive impact in their communities and the world.
I have a unique background in government funding, nonprofit management, and social entrepreneurship. My expertise helps clients develop and implement sustainable strategies for social change. I am a speaker and thought leader on issues related to social impact and sustainability. You’ll find me at virtual training and at networking events sharing resources and practical tools for sustainable impact-driven work.
My experience as a grant professional is deeply rooted in the 13 years I spent creating successful and sustainable programs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. During these years I learned the ins and outs of federal grant writing, review, and management. I honed my expertise and trained hundreds of grantees in strategies to implement and sustain their work. I also reviewed hundreds of grant applications and oversaw grant review competitions year after year.
When I left the federal government to work in local government, I realized how valuable this experience was. Understanding federal, state, and local funding at a deep level to create synergy to solve complex problems is a very cool skill to have.
That’s why this course is so different from anything else on the market. This course is written from the perspective of what you need to do in advance BEFORE you have any funding to be ready to put the money into action once you’ve secured it.
If you’re ready to create sustainable grant writing capacity in your organization, I’m here to help you make it happen. I give you the tools you would normally get AFTER you get funded. These are the same techniques and tools I used to teach new grantees to be successful. These are also the same methods I’ve taught to my staff and team members as a funder.
I’m looking forward to helping you reach your funding goals.
