Project Grantsmanship is a 5-day training on grant proposal development and program planning. It was designed to give participants the skills they need to secure funding for the services they provide—and to develop a solid foundation for future programming. We see this opportunity ultimately as an investment in the different communities within Los Angeles County who will benefit from the improved services.
Project Grantsmanship was developed in 2007 as a partnership of the Annenberg Foundation, the California Community Foundation, and The Grantsmanship Center. It is now supported by a growing number of foundations, including the Dwight Stuart Youth Fund and The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation. Project Grantsmanship shares the same curriculum as our Grantsmanship Training Program, but Project Grantsmanship is generously underwritten by our partners so the tuition is significantly less. The standard tuition for the Grantsmanship Training Program is $895. Through Project Grantsmanship, the cost to attend is only $200 or $300 per person (depending on the organization’s budget).
To qualify, all applicants must be either board members or paid staff from 501c(3) nonprofit organizations based in Los Angeles County with budgets of $10 million or below.
