The Complete Idiot's Guide to Grant Writing


With more than 25 years experience in fundraising and nonprofit management, I am well prepared to assist your charity in increasing grant income. For largely volunteer groups, seminars in the basics of fundraising, research, and grant writing will prepare a number of people to go out and raise more money.

The Complete Idiot's Guide to Grant Writing, 3rd Edition (at Amazon)

In it I provide a personal perspective on each funding source (foundations, corporations, government agencies, and even individuals) and explain how to do the research that will give you the best chance of getting a grant, with, of course, a complete description of how to write one.

Special features that you might not find in other grant writing guides include a chapter just for individuals seeking grants and two chapters about freelance grant writing (including how to price your services). Internet resources have been updated and added.
