Praise for the Second Edition of Storytelling for Grantseekers
"Clarke's book is easy to read and follow, and her contention that grantmakers will be persuaded by a compelling story that demonstrates both knowledge of program and need for funding is spot-on."
—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
"I recommend her book to all my students."
—Vivienne French, parttime faculty, Truckee Meadows Community College, Reno, Nevada
"My first edition is worn out from good use."
—Jean Therrien, executive director, Neighborhood Family Practice
