Five-star reviews for GrantsMagic U's "The Quick-Start Guide to the One-Page Grant Proposal" course:

Fantastic course!

by Maurine Nichols

I've taken other free online grant writing courses, so I was not expecting much. I was blown away, though, by the depth of coverage and how engaging the instructor and materials are. I *highly* recommend this course. After watching, I signed up for a full paid course, I was so impressed. 

Wow! What a great idea

by Beth Ann Johnson 

The Magic Wand -- I am over the moon with joy to have this tool. I write grants for four programs where I work, each distinctly different. I am so excited to start putting together the one pager for each one!

The One-Pager is a WOW winner!

by Patricia Bryte

As a former instructor of prof dev, educational sales, and writer, I am absolutely thrilled to find Maryn's generous, colorful, engaging, relevant, clever, imaginative programs! ... The 1-pager is a WoW winner in that you have a versatile tool for focusing, clarifying, sharing and mastering a skill that Maryn must've taken hours to master. I wanted a worksheet for clarifying steps to help a nonprofit that needs funding. I must've used good search terms :) for up popped Maryn's 1 page. In an era of techie overwhelm, GrantsMagic delivers--magically!

Fantastic information!

by Valerie Hooks

This is grants gold! Simplifies the process so you don't get overwhelmed and bogged down. Listen to this and then listen again. I wrote a lot of notes and will probably review again soon.

Wow! Awesome Sauce

by Mika Timmons

What a dynamic, energetic, and positive presentation! I'm so excited about using all of Maryn's worksheets, tips, and strategies! I have been skeptical about what a webinar could do, but this course made me feel 100% engaged like I was in a classroom, sitting right in front of Maryn. So good!


by Teresa Donaldson

This really simplified preparing the LOI (Letter of Interest). I can't wait to break down the programs I raise funds for and complete the worksheet on each of them.
