What does the word “mission” mean to you as a practicing grant professional?
Too many of us focus on the missions of the organizations we serve, and lose sight of the ways our work supports our own personal sense of purpose in the world.
In this experiential session, you’ll have the opportunity to step back from the details of what you do, and reflect on the why and how – Why the work is meaningful to you personally, and how to rediscover and stay connected with your passion and purpose.
Through a series of thoughtful discussions and individual and team exercises, you’ll be challenged to:
Over her 35+-year nonprofit career, Maryn Boess has been an on-staff grantwriter; a grants consultant (winning $42 million for her clients over 10 years); a grants trainer; a grants reviewer, author, speaker, mentor and coach; and – starting in 2006 - even a grantmaker. This 3-D background brings a unique insider's perspective to the practical, inspiring trainings on healthy, successful grantsmanship she shares with thousands of people each year through GrantsMagic U (Go.GrantsMagic.org).
A true dual-citizen of the grants world, Maryn may be the only person holding membership in both Grant Professionals Association (for grantseekers) - and Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (for grantmakers). In 2020, Maryn became just the second inductee into the international Grant Professionals Class of Distinguished Fellows, in recognition of her long history of contribution to the field.
