Editorial Reviews

Review

"Many books have been written about the grant writing process. Few, if any, have taken the route of going to the source by interviewing program officers. Clarke and Fox do just that. And, they do it well!" (www.charitychannel.com, October 2008)

"Use these two books (see previous review) and you are likely to vastly improve your chances of being the one that gets funded." (About.com, April 26 2007)

Review

"Grantwriters, development directors, executive directors—all nonprofit executives who want to write high-quality grant proposals that catch and then keep the attention of donors should read this excellent guide."
—Tony Silard, executive director, The Center for Social Leadership

"Working through six major problem areas with examples plus invaluable comments by foundation staff, Clarke and Fox go far beyond the basic 'how-to-write-grants' book."
—Michael Wells, CFRE and editor, Charity Channel and Foundation Review; author, Grantwriting Beyond the Basics

"This book instantly becomes a must-read for anyone needing to improve their grantwriting skills!"
—David Perry, David Perry & Associates, Inc., winner of the 2006 San Francisco Business Arts Council Award for Exceptional For-Profit Arts-Related Business

"The perspectives provided by funders are invaluable."
—Jean Therrien, RN, MS, executive director, Neighborhood Family Practice (Community Health Center), Cleveland, Ohio

"One of the greatest challenges to a CEO is writing a proposal. With this book, anyone can be a winner."
—Maria-Elena Noriega Foster, consultant, Noriega Malo y Asociados, S.C., Mexico City, Mexico

"Puts you into the mind of the grantmaker and helps you think like the trustees who want to make sure their funds are well spent."
—Jim Lowder, director of development, Asheville Area Habitat for Humanity, Asheville, North Carolina

"Will help you build valuable partnerships with grantmakers."
—Catherine D'Amato, president and CEO, Greater Boston Food Bank, Inc., Boston, Massachusetts

A helpful guideline to clean up your writing and thought skills. It pointed out mistakes such as giving too much information in a disjointed manner. I think it is useful. I am new to grantwriting for a small art nonprofit and reading lots of books. I did read the whole book so that is a star in itself. Reading for information is a lot different than reading for pleasure and one tends to skim informaiton.

I think this book is really brings to the surface many of the failings of grant books. I highly suggest it. I also suggest another book linked below. The "Government Funding and You Series" is also excellent.

The (intentional) mistakes make great cautionary tales. It is filled with "how" not to write parts of the grant. Its critique of its featured mistakes are too filled with broad generalizations and not enough practical criticisms. The price on this product is too high.

Loved this book as it was written with the input of grant-making professionals, and therefore, was very applicable to the real world.
