GrantsMagic UPANO Benefits

Founded in the fall of 2015, GrantsMagic U is the “virtual academy” created by Chief Magic-Maker Maryn Boess to maker her extensive portfolio of practical and inspiring trainings on successful grantsmanship available (and affordable!) for anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Over her 35+-year nonprofit career, Maryn has been an on-staff grantwriter; a grants consultant (winning $42 million for her clients of 10 years); a grants trainer; a grants reviewer, author, speaker, mentor, and coach; and – starting in 2006 – even a grantmaker. This 3-D background brings a unique insider’s perspective to the practical, inspiring trainings on healthy, successful grantsmanship she now 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 Grantsmakers for Effective Organizations (for grantmakers). In 2020, Maryn became just the second inductee into the International Grant Professionals Class of Distinguished Fellows, in recognition of her long history of contribution to the field.

GrantsMagic U addresses grantsmanship not as an isolated “to-do list” activity, but rather, as a strategic and systematic organizational process that is deeply imbedded in your organization’s mission, vision, and values, and for which roles and responsibilities are shared by every stakeholder. All grants-related workshops and presentations:

  • Offer hands-on, practical guidance grounded in day-to-day reality
  • Include top-notch takeaway value with perspectives, tools, and step-by-step frameworks that get results
  • Encourage big-picture thinking, attention to fine detail, and teamwork and collaboration at every level.

PANO’s affiliate partnership with GrantsMagic U means access to Maryn’s cornerstone training program, The Ultimate Grant Proposal Blueprint, at a $50 discount – just $147 for the 8-session course instead of $197! Plus, bring up to 3 additional team members for only $25 each. See details here, and browse GrantsMagic U’s full training calendar here.
