They Raised Millions...
How Ordinary People Helped To Raised Millions of Dollars For Their Nonprofits and Government Agencies
Hi, I'm Rodney Walker, a Master Grant Acquisition Specialist. The story I tell you below is the absolute truth, as incredible as it may seem.
"Help, I Need To Raise $15,000.00!"
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.
"Rodney, What Am I Going To Do?"
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...
"What Am I Doing Wrong?"
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:
My Grant Journey... And Why This Might Be Important To You In Raising Lots Of Money
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 was convinced that this knowledge would pay BIG DIVIDENDS in helping me to achieve my goals... if I could learn it.
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.
So, I gave it my best shot and worked on a grant proposal for a new nonprofit organization with a program I had developed.
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 received a notice that my grant request was DENIED!
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 was determined from that day on to get the necessary training to become a GREAT grant writer.
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.
I became really good at grant writing.
I started sharing my insight with others, and they started achieving similar success.
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.
The Short Ride That Eventually Led To Helping Others Raise Millions Of Dollars In Grant Money
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 a time when many organizations are struggling to raise funds, The Ultimate Grant Writing That Gets Funded training and coaching program has continuously helped organizations rise above the tide.
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 system takes a comprehensive approach to grant writing. It transforms it into grant development which is what you really want to do if you are serious about attracting maximum funds into your agency.
I have managed to remove the complexities of grant development and designed an easy-to-understand method that holds you by the hand and guides you step-by-step to the quickest ways of securing grants.
What this means for you is that you will AVOID many of the costly mistakes and common pitfalls that most organizations make by learning today's best practices.
I will train and guide you, along with several other veteran grant professionals, fundraising experts, and funders, into understanding exactly what you must do to win grant money at a high level.
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!
Where do you think these Champions would be if they didn't have winning strategies or a coach in their life to lead them to victory?
Does Steph Curry and Draymond Green win the NBA Championship without Coach Steve Kerr?
Do the Patriots win their Super Bowls without Coach Bill Belichick?
Does the Alabama Crimson Tide even make it to the college championship games without Coach Nick Saban?
Does Serena Williams win her Grand Slam Tournaments without coaching?
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.
The clients that I have seen become the most successful in securing money were those who:
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
4. Avoided countless mistakes by following today's best practices
5. Received ongoing support through coaching for maximum success

You don't have to figure this out… RELAX, I've done that for you!

When you get my comprehensive grant development system, you can consider yourself officially enrolled in Cash Cow University!
This is where you will get one-on-one teaching to help you discover the art of winning grant money repeatly!

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.
Tell me what happens when your agency selects a team to go through my training, and you're able to print out all the workbooks you need for each person with all the forms and templates in my system, and they start acquiring the knowledge to win the money.
What happens when your agency starts working smarter by doing grant development as a team instead of as a solo job by one frustrated person?
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.
I will literally walk you step-by-step through a grant proposal and highlight the good and the bad so that you can gain valuable lessons from both.
You will see first hand what a good narrative that tells a compelling story it's supposed to look like. This means your proposals can be modeled after these winners and adapted to incorporate a similar style.
I will reveal to you the secrets of how to say more with fewer words.
My sample grant proposals will help to unlock and demystify the best ways to capture the interest and attention of those who are giving out the money and take them on a journey that leads them into giving your agency money.
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.
This Manual Is Going To Help You To:
Communicate with funders the way they want to be communicated with. This is going to help you avoid looking and sounding like a rookie in your grant request which could be the kiss of death to your request if done the wrong way.
Incorporate solid evaluations into every proposal you develop so that funders see that you're taking their investments seriously. This means you will be able to distinguish your grant request from over 75% of the others who are submitting proposals that are not doing this.
Demonstrate the true value of what your organization is proposing to do by developing solid timelines and program activity descriptions. You’ll be able to paint a picture with your words and descriptive language. And much more!
You will gain access to the Logic Model and learn how to use it effectively.
You will learn how to craft better budgets and illustrate in words and numbers exactly what your agency is bringing to the table to help the funder fulfill its mission wisely with the funds they invest in your agency.
You will benefit from additional samples of winning grant proposals to add to your grant proposal library that is only a click away when you need a quick reference to consult.
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.

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!

All I can say is that it has helped me and my students raise millions! Just imagine what it is going to do for you and your agency when you access my resources. I have four exclusive one-on-one interviews that tap you into the mindset of funders.
