Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth and Dallas Public Library Join to Help Public and Private Nonprofits Win Grant Funding

Nonprofits of all kinds need grant funding to do their work, but competition for grant dollars is fierce. To help nonprofits win the grants they need, Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth and the Dallas Public Library have come together to bring the Grantsmanship Training Program® to Fort Worth the week of May 13-17.

More than 140,000 nonprofit professionals are alumni of this dynamic training program, and tens of thousands credit the training for their success in bringing in grant funds to meet community needs. In an ongoing, independent evaluation, 385 alumni indicated securing more than $21M in grant funding within six months of the training.

The Center’s highly participatory Listen & Discuss, Do & Review® curriculum engages and inspires as people develop program plans, draft full grant proposals, and then helpfully review each other’s work. Alumni return to their offices with real experience, solid work product, a binder of resources, and connections with peers for new partnerships and collaborations.

The textbook used in class, Grantsmanship: Program Planning & Proposal Writing, has been praised by grantmakers and nonprofits from coast to coast as the blueprint for effective grant proposals.

Class size is held to 30 participants. Early Bird Tuition is $995 until April 1. After April 1, tuition is $1,095.  Half-scholarships are available for a limited number of qualified organizations. Register, get more information, or apply for a partial scholarship by contacting The Grantsmanship Center at (800) 421-9512 or or

The training will be provided at Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth’s headquarters located at 4005 Campus Drive, Fort Worth, Texas 76119.
