Inside the Grantmaker's Black Box: What Really Happens When You Push "Submit" On Your Grant Proposal!

in partnership with the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits

You know that feeling on Deadline Day...


...when yo finally push the SUBMIT button and say good-bye to your grant proposal as it disappears - for weeks, months, even forever - while you wait to find out whether it's going to be funded or not...

That space between "submit" on one side - and "notification" on the other - is what we call The Grantmaker's Black Box. That's where everything happens to decide which proposals are awarded ...and which aren't.


Yet for those of us on the grantseeking side, what happens inside the Black Box is virtually invisible - as if our proposal has vanished in to a deep mysterious world we can't see, can't influence, can't begin to understand.


But what if you could hop inside a real-life Grantmaker's Black Box and get an up-close, real-world insider's look at what goes on there? 


During the webinar you’ll get a sneak preview of GrantsMagic U’s online training program, The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint 2018, set to begin on June 18. The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits is proud to partner in this 8-session, 16-hour video-based course that shows you, step by step, how to craft an A+ grant proposal from the inside up. Registration opens May 22, with special discounted pricing for Alliance members.

Get a pre-opening peek here!

In this fast-paced, eye-opening live training, you’ll join veteran grants officer Maryn Boess for a unique journey into the heart of the Grantmaker’s Black Box.

  • You’ll navigate the 8 typical Checkpoints your proposal has to clear on its way from Deadline Day to You Got the Grant.
  • You’ll eavesdrop on reviewers’ behind-the-scenes conversations about what they love – and what makes them grumpy.
  • You’ll put on your Grantmaker’s Cap as you learn what really happens in the final decision-making … and why in the end the points no longer matter.

Be ready for plenty of surprises, aha!s and hmm’s as Maryn shares story after story about real life inside the Grantmaker’s Black Box – and tons of takeaways you can put to work immediately on behalf of your own nonprofit and community.
