Nonprofits of all kinds need grant funding to do their work, but competition for grant dollars is fierce. To help nonprofits win the grants they need, University of New Mexico (UNM) Foundation is bringing the Grantsmanship Training Program® to Albuquerque the week of March 2-6.

“This course covers all aspects of finding appropriate funders, writing grant proposals, and developing strategies for securing government, foundation grants and corporate grants. We partner with The Grantsmanship Center to bring this opportunity to Albuquerque because we believe it’s the best training you can get,” said Betsy Till, UNM Foundation Senior Director of Corporate and Foundation Relations.

Over 140,000 nonprofit professionals are alumni of this dynamic training program, and tens of thousands credit the training for their success in bringing in grant funds to meet community needs. In an ongoing, independent evaluation, 385 alumni indicated securing more than $21 million in grant funding within six months of the training.

The textbook used in class, Grantsmanship: Program Planning & Proposal Writing, has been praised by grantmakers and nonprofits from coast to coast as the blueprint for effective grant proposals.

To ensure personal attention, registration is limited to 30 participants. Tuition for this training program is $1,095. UNM faculty, staff and retirees can use tuition remission for this workshop.

UNM staff and faculty may mail, fax, or scan and email a completed UNM Tuition Remission Form in lieu of payment. In some instances, a supervisor’s signature is required for use of Tuition Remission. UNM Retirees may call or come in to register for classes using the tuition remission benefit.

All other participants may contact The Grantsmanship Center at (800) 421-9512 or  to register.

The training will be provided at the Rotunda, 801 University Blvd. SE, UNM Science & Technology Park.
