Let's grow your grants success ... together!
“In less than two months, GrantsMagic U training helped this Total Grants Newbie land a new job at a well-known regional nonprofit and win almost $50,000 in grants! Maryn is an exceptional teacher, an inspiration and a joy.”Kathleen Porcello (Portland, OR)
“I've been a successful grant writer for more than 25 years and Maryn is at the top of my list of people who can teach this old dog a lot of new tricks. In 90 minutes she covers a wealth of information -- with the authority of someone who is both a grant writer and a grant maker. Her teaching style is wonderfully personable, the handouts and tools are powerful and simple. I highly recommend any course from GrantsMagic U!”Barbara Gorzinski, St. Vincent De Paul/Seattle (WA)
“Wanted to share something unusual that happened to me the other day thanks to your training. We applied for a $10,000 grant for a program that works with autistic kids. 2 weeks later we got an email saying we were getting $15,000! ... This is the only time I’ve ever written a grant and gotten more than I asked for! Thanks for all your help!!”Matt Nash, Children's Development Ctr (Richland, WA)
“As a Total Grants Newbie, I found Maryn's experience as both a funder and a grant-seeker priceless. Knowing what the funder needs to hear in a proposal is so important. Her trainings are designed to give you a well-rounded experience and the tools to be a winner. Hands down, this is the BEST INVESTMENT I HAVE EVER MADE!”Liela Abass, Zaman International (Dearborn, MI)
“I learned more in 90 minutes with you than I've learned in expensive, two-day grant proposal seminars. Just - wow!”Jeri Kemmer, Strong Harvest Int'l (Vancouver, WA)
“I just came across your 'Grant Proposal Blueprint' (webinar session). It is so good it made me want to cry. Out of all the books and seminars and workshops I have attended, your Blueprint, in a mere 90 minutes, succinctly outlines what organizations need to do to be successful with foundations.”Diane Wiley, Independent Grantwriter (Long Beach, CA)
“I have written a lot of grants and wish I had taken your training 10 years ago. I have been fairly successful but wow, watch us now! ”Barbara Mason, Golden Road Arts (Hillsboro, OR)
