History of Ascend NBS
Arlene Siller – Founder & CEO of Ascend NBS

If you’ve ever wanted to know how to conduct grant research — how to find funders, where to find them, how to determine which funders are actually a good fit, and how to put it all together into a strategy that brings in grant funds year after year — good news! Our complete Grant Research Masterclass will show you how.

A 12-week coaching and grant writing program designed by an expert grant writer, Arlene Siller, Story-Based Grant Writing is delivered through self-paced, online, video training to help you master grant writing to raise funds for your organization. We teach individuals, fundraising leaders, staff, and volunteers the practical steps to learn grant writing, while building a system for consistent funds.

We share our experiences, mistakes, resources and successes in starting a grant writing business in a 6-week online course designed to walk you through the process to start your own grant writing consultant business.
