Grant writers are a dime a dozen but great grant writers are worth their weight in gold. Instead of trying to find and hire a great grant writer, I’ll help you train someone from your team to successfully apply for and win grants.
Are you feeling like you’re missing out on funding because you can’t manage grant growth with all the other jobs you do?
Are you feeling overwhelmed and missing all those grant opportunities?
But there’s just no more time in the day?
“DeaRonda took me from feeling like I had no clue how to write grants or what direction to take to feeling confident in managing our grant pipeline in just one month.”

Train Up Your Grant Writer is a 6-week cohort program to take internal staff (think… programming, administrative, operations) and train them up to be great grant writers, helping your organization win grants to grow your impact.
Free up your time as an Executive Director!
Ease the burden of managing someone to do the grants - let me take the work right off your shoulders.
Transform your organization with exponential funding growth.
I’m DeaRonda and I have worked at and consulted with numerous leading nonprofits as a grant professional and have 10 years of experience winning grant awards totaling $35M over the course of my career.
I help train grant writers to reduce burnout, turnover, and provide ongoing support. I know and understand why quality grant professionals are leaving nonprofits in droves and I will properly train and onboard your grant writer especially those new to the industry as well as more seasoned professionals.
Since there is only so many hours in a day - and the demand is high for great grant writers, I’m working with Executive Directors to help them train their staff so they won't have to.
I’m a member of the Grant Professionals Association (GPA) where I have served as Georgia Chapter President for two years. I have an MBA from Ashford University and Bachelor of Science degree from the prestigious Tuskegee University.
"After nearly ten years in this industry, I've learned the value of having someone to mentor and coach you through the journey of grant writing. When I started, all I had was Google and a prayer! And while this worked for a season, I truly believe that my growth and development as a grants professional skyrocketed when I rallied the support of other mentors in this space. Having DeaRonda guide and train your grant writer will help your organization navigate the grant process from start to finish. Her curriculum is also a tangible value add for your organization long after the cohort. I encourage you to check out TUYGW!"

Train Up Framework
COHORT 2 WILL LAUNCH IN Spring 2023!!
The grantwriting training sessions that I have had with DeaRonda Harrison have built my confidence in my ability to plan, prepare, and submit a federal grant for our organization. I felt very comfortable asking questions and was given thorough and relevent answers. I am eager to put the knowledge that I have gained of federal grantwriting and grant planning into practice.

The only thing worse than training your employees and having them leave is not training them and having them stay. — Henry Ford, Founder, Ford Motor Company.--
But, You don't have to worry.
Your organization receives a copy of the Train Up Framework including video recordings from live training sessions, swipe copy, research, boilerplate language, and all supplementary materials.
It all belongs to you so you can use it for new grant staff if necessary.
Just consider it your onboarding material for your grant staff.
IT IS YOURS FOREVER!!
This is a no-brainer to build your grants program to start raising over 6-figures a year in grant funding. Especially if you are:
But… save your money if…
""Having written grants for nearly two decades, TUYGW would have saved me so much heartache and headache if I had it when I first started. When I first started in grants, I didn't know if what I was doing was right and I definitely did not understand grant lingo i.e. prospect research and qualifying a funder. By using time-saving techniques and methods, TUYGW will help you raise funds for your nonprofit by building your knowledge and confidence and setting yourself up for grant awards much more quickly. I could not recommend this program enough.

If you do not currently have grant staff or someone at your organization to participate, then this program may not be for you. But, if you hire or want to train staff in the future, I am here for you.
I cannot guarantee results but if you follow the framework detailed in the training you will see grant money start to come in for your organization.
No experience is required. These are actually some of the best people to coach because they come with no expectations.
Absolutely perfect for the busy ED to gain the foundational grant education to understand and manage grants for your organization.
If your ED does not see the value in Train Up Your Grant Writer to support you, then you probably won’t be there long. When you quit and start at a new organization, share this with your new ED. ;-)
Train Up Your Grant Writer is not grant writing services but does provide high-level grant writing support i.e. grant reviews.
There will be future dates in 2023, sign up for the wait list. But there is a chance the price will increase so don’t miss this introductory price!
Absolutely, for an additional investment. You can schedule a call to discuss one-on-one options.
Every training session is live and recordings will be provided.
Grant Writing Training typcially doesn't teach you: Do NOT Submit Cold Grant Applications.
