We offer an online version of the popular GM101 workshop (coming soon!) and a collection of Learning Modules

 is self-paced and interactive, and highlights what grants managers new to the profession need to know about effective grantmaking, including the scope of their role and the components of grantmaking process. Each Learning Module is a package of materials that will expose you to tools and ideas you can apply in your grantmaking and share with colleagues.

And, look for a course on risk management later in 2019.
