This is a real good book - small in size but loud in impact. It is a good book for a beginner to the grant writing and the grant management process. Lot of information packed into the pages. Don't get distracted by its size. There is almost something about everything in this book. I would recommend it to those who are preparing for exams.
Veteran grant writers and nonprofit funding development specialists Ellen Karsh and Arlen Sue Fox again combine their vast experience in this updated third edition of their best-selling handbook for preparing successful grant proposals to foundations and government agencies. Whether you are a veteran grant writer or whether you are new to grantsmanship, you are sure to learn fresh strategies and effective techniques for presenting solid, well-designed proposals. Full of information, explanations, practical advice and examples, the book provides an appendix featuring 50 useful tips, a proposal checklist, a glossary, sample grant forms, a state-by-state directory of community foundations and a list of important websites. The book also presents a revealing "Funders' Roundtable" of grant makers discussing the effects of the 2008 economic recession. getAbstract recommends that serious grant writers - and those who aspire to be - keep a copy within reach at all times.
This may be the only grant-writing book that some people will ever need. But those people run small American non-profit organizations focused on after-school programs. If you don't fit into this category, find another book! I do not fit this category (I am an academic in the UK) and I found nothing useful in this book. None of the resources are relevant to the UK either.
