10 Steps to Get You Where You Want to Go … No Matter Where You Are Right Now!

Getting to your next level of grants success shouldn’t be confusing. You can do it – here’s how! 

Total grants newbie … capable grants practitioner … seasoned grant pro … wherever you are right now, this masterclass is for you. 

In this fast-paced, high-takeaway live online training, veteran grant professional and grantmaking officer Maryn Boess shares GrantsMagic U’s unique Grants Success Path – the powerful 10-step road map that cuts through the often-bewildering “grants wilderness” to lead you reliably to your next level of grants success.  

The 10 steps:

  • Get Real
  • Get Ready
  • Get Clear
  • Get Together
  • Get Building
  • Get Out There
  • Get It Out the Door
  • Get It Into the Finals
  • Get Feedback
  • Get Better

This class offers a unique, eagle’s-eye view of the entire trajectory of practices that create lasting and sustainable “grants success” – a perspective even grants veterans can struggle with. The Grants Success Path is also a construct that consultants can share with their own clients to help those clients understand the foundations of long-term grants health.

Over her 25+-year career in the nonprofit world, Maryn has been an on-staff program developer and grantwriter; a independent grants consultant (winning more than $42 million for her clients over 10 years); a grants project manager; a grants trainer; a grants reviewer, author, speaker, mentor and coach; and - since 2006 - even a grantmaker.

This done-it-all background gives her the unique 3-D "insider's" perspective she brings to the practical and inspiring trainings on healthy, successful grantsmanship that she has been blessed to share with thousands of nonprofits of every size, nationally and internationally as well.

GrantsMagic U, launched in fall 2015, is the "virtual academy" she created to make her extensive portfolio of grantsmanship trainings available (and affordable!) for anyone, anytime, anywhere.

GrantsMagic U is an Approved Continuing Education Provider for both the Grant Professionals Certification (GPC) and Certified Fund-Raising Executive (CFRE) credentials.

Since 2006 Maryn has also been “in the grantmaker’s chair,” managing up to $2 million annually in grantmaking for K-12 education in the Southwest.

She considers herself a dual citizen in the grants world, and may be the only person currently holding membership in both GPA (Grant Professionals Association, for grantseekers) and GEO (Grantmakers for Effective Organizations, for grantmakers).

Every hour of GrantsMagic U training qualifies as 1 credit toward CFRE and GPC continuing-education and certification requirements.
