Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Effective grant proposals are not so much written as they are extensively researched, developed, and positioned. The actual writing, obviously an essential component, is nevertheless only the tip of the iceberg. Grant seekers must possess the necessary skills to correctly identify potential funders, craft a proposal that meets a specific funder’s needs, and follow that funder’s directions to the letter. Cheryl New and James Quick take grant seekers step-by-step through the entire development and drafting process in How to Write a Grant Proposal.

The authors concentrate on all the behind-the-scenes, pre-writing work that makes the difference between successful grant proposals and those that potential funders discard as "nonresponsive." New and Quick concentrate on crafting specific proposals that prove a perfect match between a funder and a solicitor’s needs. Funders and the nonprofit organizations they support are both in the business of solving problems; the key is creating a project that addresses a problem that both parties are interested in solving. How to Write a Grant Proposal provides targeted guidance for a variety of kinds of organizations, including:

K—12 private and public educational organizations

Government agencies

For-profit businesses

Health care organizations

Traditional nonprofits

Higher education universities and centers

A companion website contains guidesheets and templates that can be easily downloaded, customized, and printed. The authors provide examples of completed proposals and numerous case studies to demonstrate how the grant-seeking process typically works.

How to Write a Grant Proposal proves a one-stop resource on how to interpret a funder’s guidelines to create a successful grant proposal.

I have had this book so long I am afraid to let it go. Why? It remains relevant even with the changing times. It's a good read and a handy reference. Easy to understand, properly laid out, and full of the right kind of info a grant writer seeks. Can't go wrong for this price.

Perfect for beginning grant writers. This book is definitely an investment. It outlines simple ways to construct a grant proposal. It's straight to the point and very user friendly. As with any grant you plan to write, use this book for general referencing and ALWAYS follow the guidelines provided from the actual grant funder (will save you a lot of time and headaches)!

I bought this book because it was actually required for a class I was taking about acquiring and managing grants. It is fairly easy to read, although it did get confusing when I tried to cross-reference it with another book about writing grant proposals that was also required for the class. One thing to consider is that with these 2 grant writing books, they each offered different components for the same sections of a grant proposal. Either way, this book helped me get good grades on my writings for the class, so I liked it.
