Grantsmanship Training Program Coming to Baton Rouge

Posted By Barbara Auten, Alzheimer's Services of the Capital Area, Inc., Thursday, December 8, 2011

Alzheimer’s Services of the Capital Area is pleased to welcome the Grantsmanship Training Program to Baton Rouge. We would like to invite you to participate in this one-of-a-kind workshop, widely recognized as the "gold standard" of grants training. It will be held January 23 - 27, 2012 at 3772 North Blvd., Baton Rouge, LA 70806.

This program comes to us from The Grantsmanship Center, the world's oldest and largest fund development training organization. Since 1972, The Grantsmanship Center has trained more than 1l0,000 staff members of nonprofit and government agencies around the world.

Designed for both novice and advanced grantseekers, the Grantsmanship Training Program is a comprehensive, hands-on workshop that covers the complete grant development process, from researching funding sources to writing and reviewing grant proposals.

During this intensive, five-day workshop, you will learn The Grantsmanship Center's groundbreaking proposal writing format, the most widely used such format in the world. You will also learn how to locate new funding sources for your organization and you will work with a team to prepare an actual proposal for funding.

Upon completion of the workshop, graduates receive a full year of free follow-up services through the exclusive Membership Program. These include professional proposal review and access to comprehensive online databases of foundation, corporate and government funding sources.

Alzheimer’s Services is hosting this program as a community service. We know the
funding challenges facing
Louisiana nonprofits, and we believe that well-planned programs-like those that The Grantsmanship Center training emphasize are the key to increased grant support for groups like ours.

Alzheimer’s Services decided to host this workshop for a fourth time as our staff has doubled funding from grants written by myself and Julie Brewer who attended a Grantsmanship Training program. It is the single best grant writing training I ever taken and Julie has acquired the skills necessary to develop proposals that get funded.

Tuition for this top-quality training program is $895. (A limited number of half-tuition scholarships are available for organizations with annual budgets of less than $300,000.)

To ensure personalized attention, enrollment is limited to 30 participants. These workshops often fill to capacity, so we encourage you to enroll early. To register, or to apply for a scholarship, call The Grantsmanship Center directly at (800) 421-9512 or (2l3) 482-9860. Or you may enroll online at For more information about the training site, contact Debbie Little, Development Director at 225-334-7494 or

We hope you'll be able to join us for this special training opportunity on January 23-27, 2012.
