Editorial Reviews

Lee Mahon
"I have reviewed and indeed written books on grantwriting and this is by far the most comprehensive and clear guide to grantwriting ever. The clarity of direction, including sample pages and charts, makes this a winner from beginning to end. "
Cambria Smith
"A long overdue step-by-step guide for schools and community organizations to navigate the complexities of program design and funding. In very succinct fashion, Dr. Burke has condensed her years of experience into an accessible format that can be used by anyone with even a limited understanding of the grantwriting process. Simplified Grantwriting is a must for school and district administrators, as well as service providers, as they respond to the changing educational landscape of the 21st century."
