Hi, I'm Rodney Walker, a grant writer. The story I tell you below is the absolute truth, as incredible as it may seem.
It was a short ride in Los Angeles on the 110 Freeway that led to millions of dollars being raised for countless people and organizations.
My friend Kinoti Meme, a Ph.D. student at the time, was sweating bullets because he was near the completion of his internship, requiring him to raise $15,000.00 for his youth group.
I suggested grant writing!
Kinoti was clueless about grant writing and needed to be coached through the process. I shared a few pointers with him and encouraged him to attend my next grant writing workshop. He did.
The rest is a beautiful story of helping to raise millions of dollars for people all over the world.
But more on this later...
Kathleen Tiemubol had written a few unsuccessful grant proposals and wasn't quite sure what she was doing wrong. She decided to take the first step to resolve her problem... How?
She attended my grant writing workshop back in 2007 and applied the easy-to-implement principles, and wrote a successful grant proposal that resulted in her raising nearly half a million dollars for a Graduate School's Art Center.
This is what she wrote to me by email telling me about her success:
In the late 90's I was working for a nonprofit organization as a Director of an Education and Youth Development program. We had a contracted grant writer who collected the necessary information from me and the other staff to develop a grant proposal which she would eventually submit to a funder.
Even though I wasn't the one writing the proposals, I really wanted to learn this skill, especially after I discovered that the grant that she wrote had gotten funded!
I figured if I could learn how to secure grant monies for various nonprofit organizations I served, then I would always have a valuable skill that would be in high demand.
I was right.
But, what I didn't know was that the few grant writers I knew would be unwilling to teach me this craft.
At least a month was invested in preparing the proposal.
I submitted the grant proposal to a foundation for $25,000, and about a month later,
I was disappointed, to say the least.
However, the grant administrator invited me to her office to share the numerous mistakes I made in my grant proposal.
Looking back at this experience, I learned some valuable lessons from that meeting.
I read everything about grants and grant writing I could get my hands on.
I attended several workshops and training. In 2006, I completed a Master of Business Administration with a focus on fundraising and grant writing. I had the privilege of studying at Duke University, the University of Texas in Austin, the University of Southern California, and several other fine institutions.
Like Tricia Levine, who was clueless about grant writing but took my training at Pasadena City College and successfully wrote her first grant for $25,000. Or Hollie Abraham, who was also brand new to grant writing. I trained and helped to secure grant money for her organization.
I could tell you about the private school in Denver I helped train that received $250,000.00 or the countless government agencies and nonprofits that I've helped, like this one below.
Do you remember my friend, Kinoti, who was working on this Ph.D. that I mentioned earlier?
Well, I helped him get funded!
He successfully completed his degree and went on to become the chair of a nonprofit management department at Regis University. In July 2010, he approached me about teaching 16 of their Graduate Students online in an 8-week course on grant writing.
The online training I did for the university was a hit. This led me to assemble a team to develop an authoritative and comprehensive grant development training. What started out as a short ride down the 110 Freeway of Los Angeles has blossomed into a wonderful resource to help generate millions of dollars for deserving organizations and government agencies worldwide.
I believe this training was created with you in mind. Read on and see if you feel the same way!
In this grant writing super-pack, you will gain over 20 years of proven strategies, techniques, and systems that have literally helped to raise millions of dollars.
My goal for you and your organization is to help it do grant development at a high level, just like champions do it in other fields and sectors.
Over the course of my career, I've had the privilege of meeting, interviewing, and working with some AMAZING people. Many of these were celebrities and high-profile individuals at the top of their game... Yes, Champion!
The most realistic answer is NO.
We understand that we are less likely to give our very best without guidance, direction, motivation, and coaching.
The same is true when you are seeking to create a winning game-plan for securing grant funds for your agency.
1. Received our comprehensive grant development training
2. Took immediate action to implement what they had learned
3. Developed a team approach to grant development based on our instructions

I have spent over 20 years formulating my award-winning grant development process and I synthesized this essential information into templates and forms to help you ensure that you are doing things the right way, even if you are a beginner.
This means that you will not have to waste time trying to create your own systems like I did, which was carefully crafted after studying at some of the most prestigious universities and researching today's best practices which took me well over 10,000 hours to compile and produce.
I’ll show you how to use the Go-No-Go Worksheet to your advantage when deciding if you should even go after a potential funder and reveal how to strategically use this when your agency wants to go after a grant that it should not even be considering.
All of this simply means that you will be able to save precious time and work smarter versus harder.
You will become more effective and efficient by using proven systems that have already helped to raise millions.
My comprehensive systems are going to help you look like a seasoned grant professional. But more importantly, it is going to help you to get the money!
Have you ever been in a class where the teacher said something that you missed, but you were too afraid to ask him to repeat what was said because of the crowd?
No problem here.
Because you will be able to rewind this video-based learning and catch every key point needed to ring in the money.
Remember the last time you were in school and were trying to keep up with the lecture notes from your professor, but your hands were not quick enough to write down everything that was being said?
You won't have that problem here!
You’ll gain access to each of my profit-making training session handouts. Plus, every word that I say is transcribed for you… which means you will have the best notes available.
This also means you will be able to focus on what is being said and that which is most important… getting the money!
Dozens of exclusive and semi-exclusive articles are waiting to show you the keys and reveal the secret codes you'll need to open up the grant money vaults for your agency.
Believe it or not, the insights that you can get from just one article have the potential to be the secret linchpin that causes an avalanche of grant money to come to your agency.
I've seen it again and again.
Imagine yourself being like many of my other students who've applied the principles from our helpful articles that have gone on to get funded!
Now, let me tell you the good news!
Much of the heavy lifting has already been done for you. The Ultimate Grant Writing That Gets Funded training program provides you with a direct blueprint for getting that funded.
You don't have to figure this out… RELAX, I've done that for you!
Now you can get your entire team on the same page by doing group training simply by turning on your computer, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.
You don't have to do the heavy lifting… it's been done for you.
I will tell you what you can expect!
You can expect better-developed proposals that are more attractive to funders and that are produced in a more effective and efficient timeframe.
Are you seeing the power that this system has to transform your entire grant operations? I hope so because if you can, it could result in literally hundreds of thousands of dollars or even millions of dollars for your agency.
You probably will agree with me that the initial hardest part of the grant development process is simply understanding what you're supposed to do.
Let me explain. If you don't know what to do or what your proposal is supposed to look like, then things become much harder.
But you won't have to worry about this. I've covered all the bases to make sure you have everything I only wished that I had when I was first starting out.
You will have access to samples of winning grant proposals that have been funded.
This means that you will not have to guess what a good proposal is supposed to look like. It also means that you will have something concrete to model your proposals after, which will save you countless hours and give you a clear path to scoring a touchdown.
A few of my students that I have helped to raise millions told me that they loved the sample proposals that I included in this training. I believe you and your team are going to love them too… especially after you see the powerful RESULTS they are able to produce.
There's a saying that you don't know what you don't know!
And this statement is very true, especially as it relates to grant development. When I was first starting out I started collecting the most valuable insight that I could find and I started putting it inside of a manual.
As I enrolled in different trainings, seminars and certificate programs over the years that cost me thousands, I was also given various tools and resources that I found extremely helpful.
I have compiled them into what eventually became the grant writing resource manual.
Again, this is something you will be able to print out for your entire team to have everyone on the same page!
Your virtual library is loaded with over 14 informative products designed to help you immediately and in the future to secure grant funding.
The library is more like an online learning center… It is like most libraries in that it contains resources such as books, articles, reports, and items that you have to check-out and return by a certain time.
However, this library does not require you to check-back in your items because everything in your library is yours.
This means that you will have this valuable asset at your fingertips FOREVER!
Your library (virtual development learning center) is where I will live and wait for you to call upon me to provide you and your team with concise instructions on the best ways to win the money.
I've also brought many other experts and philanthropic professionals to your library to assist whenever you need it. This is done through the insightful interviews and training videos that we recorded especially for you.

I promised you that I would walk you by the hand just like I’ve with my other students. Yes, step-by-step down the yellow brick road to getting funded!
