Who Should Attend

BFR is great for new staff tasked with grant writing and fund development campaigns, as well as veteran staff looking for new sparks, strategies, and resources. And, since successful grants proposals and funding campaigns are best done as a team process, BFR is a terrific training for board members and volunteers. Every participant will learn funding fundamentals, engage funders and funding audiences, and how to write compelling grant proposals and marketing pieces.

BFR Facilitator

Stacey Gurian-Sherman has over 25 years in the nonprofit and government sectors, and has experienced “both sides” of writing and awarding grants. As a nonprofit director and state project manager she wrote successful grants – including a $3.1 million federal award. And, as a senior manager in state government, she awarded grants to community-based organizations. She has used this experience and expertise to create the Being Fund Ready training and BFR Compendium. YOU will receive the instruction and coaching needed to master strategies for winning grants & funding campaigns!
