Nonprofits of all kinds need grant funding to do their work, but competition for grant dollars is fierce. To help private and government agencies win the grants they need, Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County will bring the Grantsmanship Training Program® to Oriskany the week of March 30-April 3, 2020.


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 $21M in grant funding within six months of the training.


“This is not a sit-and-listen class,” said Barbara Floersch, The Grantsmanship Center’s Chief of Training & Curriculum. The Center’s highly participatory Listen & Discuss, Do & Review® curriculum engages and inspires as people develop program plans, draft full grant proposals, and then helpfully review each other’s work. “Our trainers make sure everyone gets what they need,” said Floersch. “Alumni return to their offices with real experience, solid work product, a binder of resources, and connections with peers for new partnerships and collaborations.”


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.


Class size is held to 30 participants. Early Bird Tuition is $995 until February 17, 2020. After, tuition is $1,095. Half-scholarships are available for a limited number of qualified organizations.

The training will be provided at Cornell Cooperative Extension Oneida County, Oriskany, NY 13424.
