Praise for the Second Edition of Storytelling for Grantseekers

—Catherine Fisher, trustee, The Thomas J. Long Foundation
"Cheryl Clarke breaks down the steps of writing a successful grant proposal and makes the entire process as natural as that of sharing the story of all the good work that our organizations do in the world."
—Dorotea Reyna, director of development, California Institute of Integral Studies

—Vivienne French, parttime faculty, Truckee Meadows Community College, Reno, Nevada
