From the Publisher"As in earlier editions, this book discusses funding from government, foundation, and corporate sponsors. The title includes practical advice and examples on developing proposal ideas, identifying funding sources, creating systems and procedures to support grantseeking activities, developing procedural components, budget forecasting, submission procedures, and follow-up techniques. This latest edition includes more extensive information on family foundations; 25 percent more than Websites than in the past editions; examples of successful proposals, including nine sample letters complete with annotations; expanded instructions on evaluation and outcomes assessments; and guidance on project sustainability after grant termination. This standard resource helps grantseekers navigate the funding process and helps grantseekers pinpoint why grants proposals fail or succeed. The volume also includes checklists and a bibliography."
"In these times of economic downturn, teacher-librarians will have to sharpen their ability to write grants. These authors have good advice….we recommend this one as a current source. Take it and use it."
