More correctly, take advantage of Dr. Glenna Crooks' legacy and experience in teaching individuals and organizations about seeking grants from the public and private sectors. She offers a readable, well-organized and effective education in how to bring your community-based (and other) programs to life through effective grant seeking (not just grant writing).
Her approach is authentic and helps grant seekers differentiate themselves from all the rest of the "good" proposals by speaking with their whole brain, whole heart and real soul. The benefits of this approach go beyond getting funded---including deep understanding and focus within the grant seeking organization itself.
I am on a foundation board for a top Nursing School and am sending copies to colleagues and recommending that this program be offered as a resource to train graduate and undergraduate nursing students in grant seeking.
Her guiding principles – honesty, clarity, and relationships – are the cornerstone for any and all organizational proposal development.
This book is filled with concrete examples and easy-to-follow templates generously shared from Dr. Crook’s grant seeking successes. If you are developing a proposal for community development, child advocacy, care for seniors, the arts, environmental protection, and other arenas where community-based organizations serve the needs of others, don’t wait until you are desperate, read this book now!
I am active in healthcare and special needs education and engagement and have shared this book with my network and as a resource to partners in grant seeking and business development.
Thank you Dr. Crooks for open sourcing your wisdom and expertise.
I have been on not-for-profit boards in the arts, healthcare, and human services, and have seen how much harder it is becoming these days to get funding. No organization, regardless of size or domain, can afford to miss out on the wisdom Dr. Crooks shares here. She is so right when she says that "Armed with honesty, clarity, and relationships, you’ll stand out as an organization that funders want to work with." I am taking this book and her slides to my next board meeting.
