In this era of connectedness, Miner and Miner offer valuable support." (Kris Andrews, Assistant Vice President of Federal Relations, University of Wisconsin System)

(Mark A. Riccobono, MSEd, Executive Director of the Jernigan Institute National Federation of the Blind)
"This book offers practical advice on why some collaborations succeed while others fail. It goes on to offer many useful guidelines on how you can lead a successful collaboration, ranging from picking grant partners to evaluating collaborative efforts. While this book focuses on collaborative grantseeking, the tips are equally applicable to any nonprofit organization whether pursuing grants or just wanting to run more efficiently." (Sue Dormanen, Online Community Manager, Community Clinic Voice, A joint project of Tides and The California Endowment)
"This book takes a well-known concept in the development field, 'friend-raising precedes fund-raising,' and applies it to grantsmanship in a new and powerful way. Rather than focusing exclusively on the relationship between the grant application and sponsor, it explains in practical terms how nonprofit organizations can prepare to work with each other (i.e., become friends) so that they can write more competitive collaborative grant proposals (i.e., raise funds)." (Kevin J. Lee, MPA, President, Loyola Academy of St. Louis)
"Maintaining a statewide network that collaborates on diverse projects to prevent childhood injury means knowing how to manage people as well as secure funding for planned activities.

(Karen Brock, MPH, Director of Safe Kids Connecticut, Connecticut Children's Medical Center)
