Overview

Need money to expand your program, train your staff, or create your project? Be assured, the money is out there. All you need to know is where the grant makers are, what they're looking for, and how to produce it. I'll Grant You That provides all three, presenting a complete course on obtaining grants.

Part book, part CD-ROM, I'll Grant You That is an all-in-one resource for finding funds, designing winning projects, and writing powerful proposals. The book itself offers everything you need to write a successful proposal. Not only does it walk you step by step through the process, it provides a series of workshops in those areas you might need a little help, including writing, organizing, presenting, and being creative. On the CD-ROM, you'll find annotated sample grants that explain what works-and what doesn't-in writing a winning grant, links to a host of Internet resources for grants and grant writing, and self-assessment tools to help you write the best grant possible.

Burke and Prater's own efforts have led not only to millions of dollars, but, more important, to improved education for their students, better communities, and richer professional lives. With I'll Grant You That, the authors grant you the same.
