The Quick-Start Guide to the One-Page Proposal

March 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Have a good idea you’d love to turn into a great grant proposal, but not sure how? Join veteran grants pro and grantmaker Maryn Boess as she shares the ten simple but powerful “Magic Wand” questions at the heart of every single grant proposal. These questions will transform your good ideas into clear, compelling, and fundable project plans—and jump-start your grants success.

You’ll be introduced to the simple but incredibly powerful one-page Magic Wand template that’s won first-ever grants of $2,000, $30,000, $144,000, and much more for nonprofits like yours. Whether you’re a complete grants newbie or a long-time grants pro, this webinar will provide you with the exact planning template to transform your good ideas into great grant proposals that get funded.

You’ll learn:

  • the seven questions that bring clarity, depth, and power to your own best thinking about a successful project or funding need;
  • how the right questions can give you “x-ray vision” into the minds of grantmakers, so you can deliver exactly what they really want every time;
  • the one question that helps you quickly zero in on those grantmakers most likely to say an enthusiastic “YES!” to your request for funding; and,
  • six surprising, powerful ways nonprofits have discovered (and you can borrow!) to put this Magic Wand to work for the causes they serve.

We’ll also bust grantseeking myths including the myth of the A+ Proposal, the myth of the Hard-Working Grantmaker, and the myth of It’s-Just-Wrong-to-Be-Messy.

BONUS:Writer’s block slowing you down? Maryn will share a simple, powerful technique to bust through writer’s block and liberate your own creative forces (and those of your team members) to bring forth your very best, clearest thinking around your grant plans.


Over her 25+-year nonprofit career, Maryn Boess has been an on-staff grantwriter; a grants consultant (winning $42 million for her clients over ten years); a grants trainer; a grants reviewer, author, speaker, mentor and coach; and – since 2006 – even a grantmaker. This 3-D background brings a unique insider’s perspective to the practical, inspiring trainings on healthy, successful grantsmanship she shares with thousands of people each year through GrantsMagic U. A true dual-citizen of the grants world, Maryn may be the only person holding membership in both Grant Professionals Association (for grantseekers) and Grantmakers for Effective Organizations (for grantmakers).
