Katherine has developed the Train-the-Grant Trainer Program for credentialed professionals who want to receive one-on-one virtual orientation, training, and feedback, and a license to utilize her grant curriculum.
Here is a description of the pilot-test from the recipient’s perspective.
“Katherine provided a Train-the-Grant Trainer orientation session via Skype including a PowerPoint and handouts that prepared me to teach Basic Grant Proposal Writing Workshops. It has been a wonderful experience and a fantastic gift to nonprofits in this corner of Alaska, where in-person professional grant training can be hard to come by. A total of 32 participants attended at two sites of the University of Alaska, including 5 people who drove in from the next town 85 miles away. The most appreciated aspect was the pre-proposal worksheet for program support, as well as having your sample short proposal to review as we walked through the components of a grant proposal. Those documents were invaluable in helping participants to fully grasp the material. I loved how we ended the workshop on a positive note with tips for proposal writing success. I think your curriculum is fantastic, and I am so grateful you allowed me to share it with the nonprofit professionals in my community!” ~ Heather O’Connor, CFRE, Executive Director, Kachemak Bay Family Planning Clinic, Homer, Alaska
