    The Title says it all!

    Fox and Karsh have compiled all of the necessary tips to grant writing in a fun, easy-to-read work of genius. I can personally account for their brilliance since I just recently received a grant to construct a website for the school system in my town. Their book served as a continuous reference for me as I constructed my grant proposal. It is obvious that these two magnificent writers have a wealth of experience and knowledge that they have graciously decided to impart upon all of us. I am deeply grateful for their advice and will forever speak highly of this extraordinary guide to grant writing. Thank you Fox and Karsh!

    A must-read

    As a first time grant writer, this book was the most concise and helpful that I have purchased so far .... thank you, Ellen and Arlen, for making me confident in this process.

    It's not so overwhelming anymore

    This book gives me the ability to face the grant application process without dread. The authors' experience in the field has made their perspective so valuable and they tell the interesting anecdotes that make the book actually enjoyable to read. I've sent it to my son who's trying to start a nonprofit and to others who are trying to keep struggling organizations afloat.

    Veteran grant writers and nonprofit funding development speciali

    Veteran grant writers and nonprofit funding development specialists Ellen Karsh and Arlen Sue Fox again combine their vast experience in this updated third edition of their best-selling handbook for preparing successful grant proposals to foundations and government agencies. Whether you are a veteran grant writer or whether you are new to grantsmanship, you are sure to learn fresh strategies and effective techniques for presenting solid, well-designed proposals. Full of information, explanations, practical advice and examples, the book provides an appendix featuring 50 useful tips, a proposal checklist, a glossary, sample grant forms, a state-by-state directory of community foundations and a list of important websites. The book also presents a revealing “Funders’ Roundtable” of grant makers discussing the effects of the 2008 economic recession. getAbstract recommends that serious grant writers – and those who aspire to be – keep a copy within reach at all times.
