Overview

Grant writing is not as daunting a task as it may seem--at least not when you have experts to guide you. In the first half of this book, the authors explain what every grant writer needs to know and do to successfully secure funding. You will learn the following:

* How to locate different kinds of grant sponsors
* How to understand the Request for Proposals (RFP)
* How to write a persuasive proposal

The second part of the book begins where most books on grant writing end. Gajda and Tulikangas lead you through the steps to take immediately after a grant is awarded and the steps needed for long-term sustainability. They tell you how to negotiate a budget, develop a media plan, and establish an organizational structure. They explain how to develop an evaluation plan and how to develop clear indicators of success. The result is a clear blueprint for success as a grant writer and project manager. By book's end, you will enthusiastically agree with the authors: You can do this!
