Be Brave, Be Bold, Be Brilliant... Take Charge and Get Funded!
Hey, guys, Rodney Walker of Grant Central USA. I want to take a moment to acknowledge this special day, January 26, 2021.
This is the day that our group, the Grant Writers Association, has officially crossed over the 15,000 member mark. Yes, 15,000 plus members now are part of the Grant Writers Association, and we have people standing in line waiting to get in.

I often chuckle when I see awards being passed out to corporate sponsors... I guess the saying is true that you have to pay to play.
Well, the are a number of reasons. But, I’ll spare you of my full list because the partial list suffices.
However, before I tell you why I think most of today's grant...
If the saying is true, "Seeing is believing," then it pays to have a grant writing portfolio.
Just think about it for a moment...
But, where do Grant Writers have their grant proposals?
Hidden away in some electronic files on their computer
No way! Please say this isn't so. If you are a grant professional you are well aware that grant writers can become very protective of the grant proposals they have developed.
However, there is no need to hide them from potential clients. Right?
There are a few reasons why you should have a portfolio:
