About This Class

Join expert grant writer Teresa Huff to learn the secrets you must know to find grants - and walk away with tips you can customize to your school, nonprofit, or grant writing business immediately.


Is your nonprofit or school always short on funds? Do you keep hearing, “There’s so much grant money out there! Why don’t you apply!” Do other organizations seem to make it look so easy to get grants, but you feel like you’re fighting for every dime?

Stop spinning your wheels and start searching for grants like a ninja.


BONUS MATERIALS you get with this course: 

  • Grant Readiness Checkup Infographic
  • Grant Search Checklist
  • Grant Search Tracker Template
  • Challenge Questions
  • Practice Scenarios to see how well you're learning to apply what we cover.


As a professional grant writer since 2005, I’ve brought in several million dollars of funding for schools and nonprofits and searched through a whooooole lot of grant opportunities. To do that successfully I had to learn how to work smarter, not harder. You can, too.

In this course you'll learn:

  • How to quickly weed out the non-options
  • Speed up your search with a checklist of what to look for
  • My method for tracking and organizing possible grant options
  • Deep-dive search secrets used by the pros
  • Step by step examples using actual funders

Then by the time we get to the Course Project, you’ll have a framework to set up your own grant search process. You’ll be able to prioritize and track the different opportunities that you find. This will help you use your time more effectively.

Less time searching = more time to write.


This course is for:

  • Staff, volunteer, or board members of a school or non-profit
  • Those who want to learn grant writing as a career or side gig
  • Complete beginners to the grant world
  • Those who have tried writing a grant or two unsuccessfully and are ready to learn the foundational basics for getting started
  • Someone who’s been writing grants for a while but needs a little help stepping up their game

I use a combination of my Master’s Degree in Education, grant writing skills, and years of experience to develop top-quality training that will give you a competitive advantage.

My series is geared toward practical skills and concepts to help you build your grant writing toolbox.

So if you feel strongly about helping your cause, start here. By the end of this course you’ll have a framework to find grant opportunities for your school or nonprofit.


Ready to propel your grant writing skills? I know you can do it. I can’t wait to hear about your cause and see how you’re influencing your community through grant funding.
