program description 

Ready to launch your nonprofit? Are you working to change your community? Will more funding help you create that change? MCBL welcomes the 5 Day Grantsmanship Training Program® to Hawaii. Join generations of social advocates who’ve achieved success and learn how to do the research, make a plan, and secure the funding you need.

  • Collaborate with others to create a strong grant application
  • Use a variety of research tools to pinpoint the funders most likely to support and partner with your organization
  • Review proposals the way funders do so you’ll understand what works and why
  • Demonstrate your organization's capacity and credibility
  • Develop a data driven description of the problem your program addresses
