Our Services

We understand the challenges of our customers…

Nonprofit organizations and businesses need grants but dread writing them.
Grants are very competitive and only the best proposals get funded.
Lack of time and staff are the greatest challenges to grant seeking.

At Grants4Good LLC, our goal is to empower nonprofits and businesses to get grants, through our high quality hands-on training programs, customized coaching, and user-friendly products.

Our mission is to be the catalyst that helps organizations turn their ideas into reality© through the power of grants. The result for our customers? More grants in less time.

Training Sessions

Last year, a national study of nonprofit organizations in the U.S. showed that the biggest barrier to getting grants is the lack of time and staff …to not only write the grants, but to find the best funding opportunities.

The second biggest reason people do not write grants is the competition. There are approximately 1.4 million nonprofit organizations in the U.S. who are eligible for grant funding. That’s a lot of competition. But…there are also over 100,000 foundations in the U.S. that award grants AND many state and federal grant opportunities. Most of these foundations have to give out a certain amount of money each year – so there are always grant opportunities!

Our training sessions are unique because participants develop their grant proposal as they learn!  You will leave not only more knowledgeable, but actually having put your new skills to use.

If you don’t see a topic on our Upcoming Events Calendar, contact us to schedule a customized training for your organization’s board, staff and/or volunteers.

“Getting grants is both an art and a science, but it’s not a mystery. We have a proven step-by-step process that helps organizations find and get grants quickly and easily.”

“Grants4Good provided Stages with the guidance, assistance and encouragement to stop talking about grant writing and actually start writing grants for our community youth theater.  We thought we had good programs for qualifying for grants but had no idea where to start or how to write them.   Margit met with us, learned about our organization and theater offerings, and sent us a focused list of appropriate grants that match our mission.  Together we started writing grants, and with her expertise, knowledge, and insight have obtained grants to help develop and expand our programs.   Our board is thrilled with the success in receiving grants due to our relationship with Grants4Good.  Grants4Good opened a whole new world for obtaining funding.”
– Sherry Vile, Executive Director, A Magical Journey Thru Stages (youth theater company in New York)
