What's a Grant VA?

A Virtual Assistant (VA) Trained as a Grant Professional

A Grant Virtual Assistant, or "Grant VA," is a business owner who operates as a contractor or employee to nonprofit & grant-eligible organizations to help research funders, design projects, craft effective applications, even manage grants, if needed.

Grant VAs know how to access public state and federal funding, as well as private grants for organizations in charge of helping our most vulnerable children, seniors, homeless, displaced individuals, unemployed... everyone hit hardest by COVID-19.

Grant Professionals Make $71,474.37/Year

No Degrees Required

High-Paying Career as a Grant Professional

Training to become a Grant VA is unique and specialized so you don’t need a college degree to be trained or to become a Grant VA! You don’t even need a high school diploma!

As successful homeschoolers have learned, one targeted class taught by one professional can start a young person (or an older person, for that matter) on a course that leads to a fulfilling and prosperous career … without college.

What One Nonprofit CEO Says About Her Grant VA...

The Grant VA Program has improved the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) online presence, will lead to increased funding through increased transparency, as well as IONS' preparedness for responding to new funding opportunities.

Our Grant VA organized IONS essential grant elements and materials to increase our grant readiness. She organized and provided the following to IONS: essential grant elements in electronic form (organized in the cloud that represents more than 80% of the documents that grant funders require), IONS' profile on GuideStar.org to reach the silver level and help IONS prepare for gold and platinum levels, a comparison of similar nonprofit organizations, and funder research with targeted funders. 

Our Grant VA's support has helped IONS organize to collect essential information about the nature and impact of IONS, leading to improving response and clarify of communication of our work, and thereby connecting more effectively with donors, new and old.

CEO, Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS)

Triple Your Chances of Being Funded With Peer Reviewers

When we researched 80 grant experts, many recommend a Peer Review process prior to submitting a proposal to a funder. They say that using Peer Reviewers triple their chances of being funded. In the Grant VA program, you will receive tips to create your own Peer Review team similar to the one funders might use to pass judgment on whether you are funded or not. You will have a chance to participate in a Peer Review process, get valuable feedback to edit your proposal draft and improve the final score your proposal will ultimately receive.

What People Are Saying...

Are Textbooks Included in the Cost of the Grant VA Program?

Absolutely! Unlike other college classes where you pay separately for your textbooks, your two course textbooks are included with your fee:

  • Program Planning & Proposal Writing by Norton Kiritz 
  • Dream-Making to Billions: Grant Writing Tips from the Experts by Phil Johncock

On your behalf, we have purchased the last remaining copies of these hard-to-get but highly-sought-after books. You can only access them as a enrollee in the Grant VA program! 

Benefit 1 - Short-Cut the Time 

The hard and time-consuming way to win grants is to do it yourself, which often takes years to learn. The easy and fastest way to learn is by allowing us to help you build the skills you need to get the funding nonprofits need more quickly.

Benefit 2 - 8 Key Elements

Over the years, experts have discovered that most funders want to see similar elements in proposals such as a 1) summary, 2) agency introduction, 3) need/problem statement, 4) outcomes/objectives, 5) project methods or design, 6) project evaluation in reaching outcomes/goals, 7) future funding after the grant is gone, and 8) budget. You will master all of these!

Benefit 3 - A Proven System

The Grant VA program doesn't just include what works for one person like most grant writing seminars do. We got a grant to research 80 grant experts around what really works. Right here, you have access to this proven system with $1.2 Billion in only 2 1/2 years of testing.

The Closest To A Guarantee That Your Proposals Will Get Funded...

Learn Best-Kept Secrets from 80+ Experts: I'm excited to introduce you to best-kept secrets from 80 experts that I wish I had known when I was starting out back in 1988. For example, one secret told to me by a funding official completely changed how I approach grant writing. It virtually guarantees success in being approved. How can I be so bold? The funder official told me so. Moreover, I have had a 100% success rate since I learned this secret. My colleague Carolyn has a 100% success rate. And, my students' success rates are off the charts! Once you discover it, you, too, will be well on your way to grant mega-success!

--Phil Johncock, MA, GPC

The E.L. Cord Foundation gave us $25,000 from my mock proposal created in your class. This past Spring, I took your online class. It has been absolutely invaluable to me. So far, I have heard from 2 grantors that I recently submitted proposals to. Both were funded! Thank You!!!!

   --Vinny Ribas, Disability Resources, Sparks, Nevada

Most graduates write at least one successful grant proposal shortly after completing the course. Many even submit the very same mock proposal they craft in class, like Vinny did in the above example.

You'll Master The Simple, Yet Powerful Idea Match Model...

We walk you step-by-step through the Idea Match model. Basically, here is how the model works...
STEP 1) First, you get clear on what you want grant funding for (i.e., your idea). 83% of experts we researched start here.
STEP 2) Second, based on a clear idea of what you want, you research funders whose funding priority matches your idea. No sense in wasting time researching funders who are not good matches for you AND them!
STEP 3) Third, once you find a good match, you customize your proposal to the funder specifications like 100% of the grant experts we researched.
