    Great book for the first time grantwriter.

    This is a great reference book for any grantwriter to have. The book is clear and offers many tips and suggestions for writing a successful grant. It would be a great addition to a nonprofit agency's library for a reference tool, and for anybody wanting to learn about how to write a successful grant.

    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!

    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.
