Hello, I'm Patrice.


I created Grants Works Academy so you can access live and on-demand training about grants, including government grants. Here you'll find training on how to become grant ready, find mission-aligned grant funding, and how to manage grants.

My Story


As a young mother I wanted to be more available for my three children so I transitioned from my full-time position as a marketing manager to a part-time role as a   grant manager for a local nonprofit in Atlanta.


That's where I learned about the great things being done by nonprofits around the country and where I learned to manage government grants. 


Grants Works Academy was developed to share the government grant management skills I learned at national and local nonprofits, a top research university, and at a federal agency.
