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.

I purchased this book because it was the most popular purchase. But then I purchased it for the wrong reason.  I am college educated and have written many research papers. My impression of the writer of this book is they are an English Major trying to write instruction and technical information. Which does not mix.  They presented very long winded information that was duplicated over and over within the book. I have never read so many examples that do not get into the nuts and bolts of the actual writing a grant request.  The writer put extra effort into telling what you are going to read in another lesson. When you arrive to page 118, they use the whole page to explain what again is cover in the next group of lessons. Then once you arrive in that lesson, they will say “what we said in lesson.” By the time I got to page 121, I stopped reading and started skimming for actual grant write instruction. Since the writer was so focus on giving you example of what someone else did and it did not work. I would suggest that you to the last 50 pages of the book to start reading, at some point they do provide an example of an actual completed grant application. I will never purchase another book written by Ellen Karsh or Arlen Sue Fox.

Veteran grant writers and nonprofit funding development specialists Ellen Karsh and Arlen Sue Fox again combine their vast experience in this updated third edition of their best-selling handbook for preparing successful grant proposals to foundations and government agencies. Whether you are a veteran grant writer or whether you are new to grantsmanship, you are sure to learn fresh strategies and effective techniques for presenting solid, well-designed proposals. Full of information, explanations, practical advice and examples, the book provides an appendix featuring 50 useful tips, a proposal checklist, a glossary, sample grant forms, a state-by-state directory of community foundations and a list of important websites. The book also presents a revealing “Funders’ Roundtable” of grant makers discussing the effects of the 2008 economic recession. getAbstract recommends that serious grant writers – and those who aspire to be – keep a copy within reach at all times.
