This guide is a fantastic reference for grant writers, from those just starting out to very-experienced fundraising professionals¿there really is something here for everyone. It¿s clear, well-organized, and engagingly written. It¿s also incredibly comprehensive, with information on every possible aspect of the business. The book walks you through the entire process, including who has the money and why they give it away, cultivation of possible sources, the actual writing process, budgets, even sample proposals of all kinds. The advice it gives is concrete and the information in it is easy-to-use. I highly recommend this book!
