Grant Education

American Grant Writers' Association


Finding, preparing and managing grants is an enormous responsibility that is often overwhelming for smaller organizations. It can also be an expensive venture if you're not sure what to look for. Hiring a staff grant writer can cost thousands each year. You already have talented people on your team. You have dedicated volunteers - and we'll bet you have people who want to learn the grants process. So don't you think it's better to learn how to fish rather than to be given a fish? 

That's our goal at LDR ProSolutions. We can absolutely write the grants for you. But then, you'd  expend more funds rather than meeting your mission. Your organization deserves the best you can offer. And we can give you the best we have to offer.  Meet Denise Whitley, Certified Grant Writer® with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. She is a dynamic teacher and coach of various subjects for more than 25 years. Her passion for helping organizations succeed with grants is second to none.  Her secret is the American Grant Writers' Association.

Professional development and advanced training exist to create impact.  But some benefits become evident over time. Many grant awards can take up to 5 months to be announced. It's important to remember that grants are not guaranteed. Wouldn't you like to have all the tools, knowledge and resources to produce high quality, effective grant proposals all the time?

You can achieve:

  • A Higher probability of grant awards
  • Greater breadth of grant opportunities
  • Confidence with technical grant writing skills
  • The ability to maximize organizational impact

It just makes SENSE.

Who is Grant Education For?

All nonprofit and government sector grant writers and directors including:

HOW IT WORKS: The American Grant Writers' Association's (AGWA) approach is hands-on. You want a real person, not just a training video. You need to interact to get the best experience.  Once you have successfully completed the program, you will have your own customized template on which to build future proposals. The AGWA is the only organization that can offer the Certified Grant Writer© Professional Credential.
