Clear, easy-to-understand, and jargon-free, this updated Fourth Edition of Proposal Writing: Effective Grantsmanship offers a step-by-step guide to writing a successful grant proposal to meet community needs. Throughout the book, the authors provide a guided process to assist the new grantwriter in understanding how to find grant opportunities, how to develop a viable project and evaluate outcomes, and how to prepare an application for funding. The book is written for employees in the non-profit sector who are asked to write a proposal and for students who may ultimately have careers that require this skill.

I had to buy this book as a textbook for class. I was initially frustrated at how small the paperback was for my almost forty dollars. But, Proposal Writing turned out to be one of the most helpful books of the semester. It is clear and concise, an easy read that doesn't waste your time. It guides you section by section through different kinds of proposals, a good intro to a world that expects you to know its hidden rules in advance. The authors tell from their experience the sorts of things you should mention, emphasize, enumerate, and avoid in each section.
I wish that it had example papers, but I'm holding on to this one.
