Grant writing skills are essential in gaining funding from government and foundation grants for a nonprofit organization. In the past, there were no college degrees in grant writing and very few, if any, books on how to write a grant. The process of learning how to write a grant was mostly trial and error, but times have changed. Today, grant writing is a science – a skill that reflects a precise application of facts or principles.

Grant Writing For Dummies can help anyone who has to seek and secure grant funds in order to keep an agency’s doors open for business or to fund a special project.

  • Get the scoop on government and foundation grants
  • Go for the gold with multiple grant requests
  • Make the case for your grant request
  • Use words that make founders say “yes”
