Earn and Learn
If you take nothing else away from us, let it be this: you can make money learning to write grants without prior experience. We will show you how to get paid with your very first project.
Get There Faster
Grant writing isn’t rocket science, but for many new grant writers going it solo, their first paths can lead to huge amounts of wasted time and money. We have the roadmap for success learned from years of trial and error.
Do It With Community
Prepare to have your mind blown. You’ll be welcomed into a like-minded community where you get to be your fully expressed self. You don’t have to (and shouldn’t!) chase your dreams alone.

Is What You Want So Unreasonable?
We know you don’t want a private jet. You want reasonable life upgrades. More time with those you love. More space for creativity. Time and energy for your health!

Real Grant Writing Success for Real People
My Journey So Far
I joined this community in May when I quit my full-time job as a Grant Manager and jumped into consulting full-time. I’m already on track to hit 6 figures by the end of the year. The community, education, and support is unbelievable.
Because Of This Community
🙏 Huge thank you to all the Unicorns, and Coach Jess, who helped us with a sticky client situation last week. I’m so grateful for this community and inspired by all the work you’re doing for good! 🦄
Teaming with Unicorns = Success!
Shoutout to Suzanne for being a great unicorn to work on federal grants with. I found her through this platform so it is so nice we have this as a resource. We just submitted a $2.3 million DOE project yesterday.
Grant Writing Budget Tutorial For The Win!
Shoutout to the Learn Grant Writing budget tutorial on cost-sharing since I had to explain that to the client about five times. Now I'm going to finish this grant writing class :)
Great Course - Do All Of It Even If You’ve Written Grants Before
I’ve contributed to many grants, but the information I’ve already gotten from this curriculum has expanded my knowledge base exponentially. Even if you’ve worked on grants before, this course is really worth every penny and minute spent on it if you start from the beginning and don’t skip around.
Best Decision Ever Made
I'm so confident about my ability to do this work, and it's such a confidence boost when I say things I've learned here to non-profit leaders and see recognition in their responses. Best decision I made this past year was joining!
I toppled the $15k mountain right before I joined the collective a month ago. AND PERFECT TIMING because I am seeing all the course curriculum and it is exactly what I need. I am thrilled to see that little $15k next to my name.
Thank You For This Incredible Support System
I was a Learn Grant Writing lurker for 2 years. Since then, I advocated my in-house position for a promotion and secured a significant side hustle contract…the support given from this group facilitated the success and gave me courage to take the steps necessary to grow.
The Community is Real
I just want to say thanks and show gratitude for taking the time to review my LOI. That was my first post asking for review help and she answered! The community is REAL!
$1 Million in First Year of Writing Grants
Within the last three days, two big grant proposals were awarded — $250,000 and $450,000! In addition to the other proposals, this puts me at about $1 million in awards in my first year of grant writing. All my cells are buzzing with joy right now! 😁
New Win Again!
I have yet another win for today! I was "granted" another contract today for grant consulting! It's for 127.00 per hour, helping BIPOC female-led businesses navigate grant writing woes and obtain funding! The course works. The community works. The knowledge gained from this blessed collective works!
Oh Happy Day! A Signed Contract!
I received my first signed contract ($22,500) for grant writing! A special thanks to Alex, Meredith and Jess for keeping my head in the game and helping me push through. So grateful to be among such an amazing group of people. 🥰
Doing What I Love!
The Collective equipped me with the systems and tools to take my career to another level. I gained the experience to win millions of dollars in grants for nonprofits. The Collective has helped me not just as a grant writer, but as a businesswoman and as a human being.
This Changed The Whole Trajectory Of My Life
The Collective has given me all the tools and templates that I need to actually become a freelance grant writer. I have never been an entrepreneur, but the Collective provides everything you need to go from 0 to 100. This program has changed the whole trajectory of my life!

FYI: We Literally Wrote the Book on Grant Writing.
Our passion and knowledge can’t be contained to a website alone! This book is everything you need to get started—it’s succinct, practical, and fun to read.
The book, 'How to Write a Grant' breaks down the complexity of grant writing so that anyone canlearn to be a professional. It's refreshingly straightforward with a modern approach. As someone who works in grants day in and day out, I highly recommend.
CEO & Co-Founder Instrumentl
My original copy of How to Write a Grant Become a Grant Writing Unicorn is well thumbed, dogeared, highlighted, and bristling with bookmarked pages. I couldn't imagine how you'd improve something I'd already found so useful.
Exectutive Director, Health TIE
“As a special needs mom, I know I can learn anything. But I still struggle with imposter syndrome and overwhelm as a new grant writer. Meredith's witty and wise insights are clear, authentic, and immediately actionable. You will not regret reading this book.
