Hosting a Grant Writing USA event.

Partner with Grant Writing USA to bring a two-day workshop to your community at a facility you provide and you'll receive complimentary seats in the workshop, great PR and an opportunity to showcase your agency to a variety of community partners.

Our event team will work closely with you to jointly promote your workshop and ensure the event is a success.

The objective of the collaborative promotion effort is to bring potential attendees to this web site.  Once that happens, Grant Writing USA takes care of everything: registrations, pre- and post-workshop customer support, incoming phone calls, invoicing, everything.  Our admin team is second to none and our online event management system is the best in the business.



"The seminar was outstanding and the instructor was very knowledgeable.  It was a pleasure dealing with you and your company and I will definitely be interested in hosting again in the future.  Thanks again."

-- Lt. Mazur, Atlantic City Police



The only catch.

There may already be an event in the planning stage in your area.  Also, in some locations we have longstanding relationships with our hosts.  Some of those hosts expect and deserve our exclusive loyalty.  Given those factors, we may have to respectfully decline your request.  Don't let that make you shy, though, because we do want to hear from you.

How much does it cost to host a workshop?

Zero.  Grant Writing USA covers all trainer expenses and provides all materials for the training.  Assuming you incur no expenses related to promoting the event (which you shouldn't - it's almost all email and faxes) or the facility at which the event is held, you pay zero for the training.  Grant Writing USA's compensation is from registrations and Grant Writing USA solely takes the financial risk.

How many free seats do I get?

You'll start with two free seats then, for every ten paid enrollments we receive, you'll get another free seat.  You're welcome to use or give away those seats.  You can even sell them and in so doing use the workshop as a fundraiser.



"It has been truly wonderful to work with you and everyone at Grant Writing USA."

-- Dr. Janis T. Morey, Director of Sponsored Research, Texas Christian University



How many participants do we need?

Forty is our goal for each workshop.  We find that a motivated host who follows our standard marketing plan combined with the efforts of our seasoned event team can successfully meet that goal.  While we do not expect your agency to guarantee a minimum number of participants, we do need a room that holds at least forty attendees.  If enrollments for your event exceed 70, we'll most likely require a sound system and riser for the trainer.  Larger groups are fine, but only if the training room is suitable.

What about the training room?

It should be set up with long tables in school room or horseshoe style with ample room for participants to work.  Please avoid gymnasiums, cafeterias and other "acoustically challenged" rooms.  As for equipment, a white board and a projector that accepts a laptop signal are required as is a live, high-speed Internet connection.  We will need web access to conduct live demonstrations of grant research strategies, which is always a popular and important part of the class.  Your trainer will bring their own laptop computer.

When can we do it?

We'll need at least 8 weeks to effectively coordinate and promote your event.  The further out you schedule, the better.  Since our workshops are two days long, Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday combinations usually work best.  You pick your days and we'll do our best to make it happen.

What else?

We'll rely on you to give us two local hotel recommendations.  Your recommendations will be posted on our web site along with your event's info and registration.  Travelers will appreciate the local insight.

While not required, your guests will appreciate coffee in the morning and water, sodas or juice in the afternoon.  If you can make that happen you'll make a lot of people smile!

What's next?

Contact our master scheduler, Becky, at 702.739.9221 or by email.  She can answer any questions.

One final option: a private event.

With this type of class, you handle the registrations and charge participants whatever you feel is appropriate.  The price for a two-day private event is currently $13,500 plus travel, lodging and meals for the trainer.  This price is subject to change; however, availability is more an issue than inflation.  Materials for up to 70 are included in the flat-fee.  If you have 35 or more team members you'd like to train or if you'd like a customized and targeted class, this is by far a better value.

"Your company is perhaps the easiest and best I have worked with on hosting classes.  Everyone I communicated with in the company is positive and professional.  The instructor was great when he got here and rolled with any changes we might have had.  I wish all were this easy."

-- Sgt. David S. Peck, Training Section, Tacoma Police Department
