Reviews - What do customers think about Demystifying Grant Seeking: What You Really Need to Do to Get Grants (Jossey-Bass Nonprofit and Public Management Series)?
An awesome tool for grant writers Apr 30, 2008
I have an advanced degree in nonprofit management and several years of experience in grant writing. This is the book that is an invaluable tool to me even this far into my efforts. I see it as indispensable for a beginner. An essential classic for anyone taking on the formidable task of grant writing.
Three years later, I still return to this book Jun 28, 2005
I purchased this book to guide me through my first grantwriting position in the winter of 2002, and I still return to it today. The sample letters are valuable, and I have successfully modified them to meet the needs of three different organizations. The filing systems make managing a huge amount of information easy. I always recommed this book to people looking to get started with grant writing, and have sung its praises at several workshops I have conducted for beginning grantwriters.
A systematic approach to grants ... and a good read, too May 19, 2004
This book presents a systematic approach that begins with identifying your internal needs and moves through the process of research, proposal development, and outreach to funders. Myths are addressed along the way; for example, grants are not "something for nothing," but rather "rational deals between colleagues." A good read filled with specific, hands-on advice.
Very comprehensive Aug 18, 2003
I am new to the grant writing field. I started my education by reading this book. I found it very informative, but easy to follow. The book is not only theoretical, but offers a great deal of "hands on" advice, including sample forms, grants, etc. The writing style was straighforward and professional. I found the book to be an excellent way to start gaining a practical understanding of this field.
Demystified! Jan 19, 2002
For anyone entering the realm of grant seeking for non profits - or seeking more effective ways to do their job - Demystifying Grant Seeking is a powerful tool. This book takes the reader through the steps of setting up a usable office, making matches between agencies and foundations, writing grant applications, evaluating the process and doing it all again, tighter, quicker, better. The authors use one agency as an example, taking their audience through the entire process. No question is left unanswered, and all questions are answered patiently, graciously, and in easily understood language. This book is a great resource.
