RJMA provides a unique series of staff and board training opportunities that include onsite, hands-on seminars, internet-based webinars, and one-on-one mentoring. Each training opportunity is designed to enhance the grant seeking capacity of the client organization by sharing with board and staff members the keys to creating a predictable flow of grants from both government and private foundation sources.
