Dear [insert Decision Maker Name],

The Education Grants Conference takes place October 2 - 3, 2019 in Pasadena, California (just outside of Los Angeles). The Conference offers two days of grant educational training from a leading grant professional. This unique forum brings together funders who award grants to education agencies, K-12, private education institutions seeking government and foundation grants. Therefore I would like to request approval to attend, as I believe it will further develop my technical skills and build knowledge around today's best practices in securing more grants for our agency.

The Conference ( offers comprehensive, cutting-edge educational sessions presented by today's leading grant development systems expert, Rodney Walker.  It covers a number of important issues related to grants, including identifying grant opportunities, grant development and grant management with a focus on education.

When I attend I’ll receive:

  • Over 12 hours of educational sessions. This year’s program includes session presentations touching on several important topics for us.
  • The chance to understand the latest trends from industry leaders and guest speakers including executives from Grant Central USA and EGC. 
  • Exclusive access for an entire year to the conference's online resource library before, during and after the event. This valuable library contains video-based trainings, samples of winning grant proposals, help articles and much more (over a $600 value).

    Payback: Our Return On Investment

    I believe the insights learned by attending EGC  will be a wise investment which will help us to garner grants in the future. The cost of a Full Conference pass seems a small price to pay for actionable insight to help us raise money for our department.

    When I return from EGC, I will compile a short presentation covering speakers presentation notes, useful vendor product information, new contacts made and a proposal for implementing new ideas that will benefit our team. I will also make any Conference materials available to my colleagues.

    To benefit from the current discount I need to register before March 26th, so I appreciate a quick response. Furthermore this conference has limited seating which is sure to go fast. Thank you for your consideration.
