Summary of Getting Your Share of the Pie
The Complete Guide to Finding Grants
Who’s not interested in winning free money for a good cause? Grant writing demystified.
Author and grant-writing expert Valerie J. Mann has successfully won close to $95 million for her clients. Now she’s written a book for US organizations that don’t have the expertise to learn what’s available or the additional funds to hire a professional to prepare their grant applications. She makes grant writing an understandable, straightforward process, as she covers the initial search for funding, how to back up the claims in your proposal and even what you can learn from rejection. She includes a glossary of common terms, a sample grant proposal and other useful information. Mann delves into the specific details of several different kinds of grants, particularly for law enforcement, although she does not spend much time discussing grants for individuals or the arts. Will this book make you an expert? Well, that takes experience, but getAbstract finds that this helpful manual will initiate beginners and set any grant seeker on a productive path.
