What People Say About This Workshop

I keep your handy Common Grant Proposal Elements on my desk!

Laura's outlines for grant application content were very helpful in making sure my grants include the appropriate information.

As an individual who is new to the development world, I have gone to a lot of trainings, listened to a million podcasts, and read a ton of articles, and I honestly think your workshops have been the best I have been to thus far. So keep up the good work!

Great day! Lots of information that I hope to put to good use. Thank you!
