Ready-to-Download Tools, Templates, and Resources for Grant Writing

What is the INSIDER LAB, anyway?

  • Are you trying to figure out how to organize your notes for the next board meeting?
  • Are you tired of getting stuck staring at a blank screen?
  • Do you wish you could wave a wand and magically know your next steps?

    Here's your magic wand, my friend.

    INSIDER LAB is a toolbox of infographics, PDFs, and spreadsheets you can download and customize immediately.
    I developed these templates over years of experience working with nonprofits and schools. Now I'm letting you cut in line and use them too. :)

    NOTE: This INSIDER LAB section is designed for you DIYers out there who are ready to grab the tools and go.
    If you're needing to walk step-by-step through how to use the tools, head over and check out the course options instead where I'll teach you how to use them, give you real-life scenarios, and of course homework. I'd love to see you in class!
