Got you covered!

  • How:  Click "Enroll" - sign up - and you're in!


The big vision for Grants Newbie Success School will unfold through 2021 and it's definitely a work in progress. 

But we're front-loading with three super-powerful video trainings adapted from recent Facebook live broadcasts - more than enough to get you under way on your Grants Success Path journey!


What we'll cover:

TOTAL VIDEO TIME:  2 hr. 14 min.


PART 1.  THE TOTAL GRANTS NEWBIE SUCCESS PATH! (2 videos, total runtime:  41 min.)

  • Hey Grants Newbie - let's start with some serious orienteering through the GrantsWorld wilderness! 
  • In our first session, join me as we map out the 10 checkpoints on the Grants Newbie Success Path - with plenty of tips, tools, and resources to get you started.


PART 2.  WHAT DOES "GRANTS SUCCESS" LOOK LIKE? - A (Loving!) Reality Check (2 videos, total runtime: 58 min.)

  • In this session we take a deep dive into what it means to "win" at the Grantsmanship Game. (Trust me - it isn't just about getting the grant!)
  • Then we tackle a few big questions from your fellow Grants Newbies about getting started and getting traction.


PART 3.  THE TWO BIG NEWBIE QUESTIONS (2 videos, total runtime: 35 min.) 

  • "Where do I even start?" Newbies Elise and Bill started with one of GrantsMagic U's free trainings - and got their first grants. Find out how you can, too!
  • "Where do I go to find grants?" We begin by having some fun with the Grants Store Myth. Then I share the single most powerful Grants Newbie strategy for connecting with the right funders - and give you five free resources to get you going!)


BONUS: Our Best Just-For-Newbies Action Posts!

Here are five high-powered, actionable posts that give you behind-the-scenes insights, tips, and how-to's to build your confidence and get you going!

Meet Maryn!

Maryn M. Boess

Founder/Chief Magic-Maker

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.
