This book is the Open Sesame of grant writing's hidden little secrets to successful proposals. Jana Hexter has unlocked the door to show how grant writing is an art form and a science. She reveals the secrets of writing with honesty and integrity. She shares home-spun personal anecdotes and her humor to get the points across and to help us remember them.

--Donald A. Griesmann, ret'd clergy & lawyer, virtual volunteer with grant announcements via Twitter (@dgriesmann)

In this thought-provoking book, Jana beautifully expresses the humanity and spirituality of grantwriting. It is not a checklist of steps to follow but a call for deeper relatedness. Jana has a knack for making the interviewees come alive, so in the end it doesn't feel like you've just read a "how-to" book so much as it feels like you have been sitting in a room with this group of fundraising veterans listening to them share their secrets.

-- Lynne Twist, author of The Soul of Money,

Founder and President of the Soul of Money Institute

A big shout out to Jana for writing a book filled with wisdom and compassion and given to us with a deep spirit of generosity.

-- Jeff Furman, Trustee, Ben & Jerry's Foundation

Jana Jane Hexter, GPC, President of Grants Champion, has written well over 150 successful proposals and raised more than $28 million for her clients in the last few years alone. Her clients include school districts, higher education institutions, and human service agencies throughout the U.S..

Born and raised in England, she graduated from Cornell University where she was a Ford Foundation Clusters Scholar. She is a captivating teacher. She has spoken at the Grant Professionals Association and AFP National Conferences. Her "Presentation on Presentation" at the National GPA conference was given the highest ranking by conference attendees. She has taught at New York University's George H.

She served on the National Board of Grant Professionals Association and is a former chapter board member of the Association of Fundraising Professionals Finger Lakes.

She lives in Ithaca, NY, and loves to hike in the beautiful state parks near her home and swim in the lakes during summer, and whiz down ski slopes a little too fast in winter.
