Description-
  • An all-in-one guide to locating and securing available grants

    As the amount of established granting foundations increases, more money becomes available--but the application process can be long, tedious, and is always highly competitive. Grant Writing For Dummies guides you through the entire grant-winning process and helps you stay current with application protocol and new grant opportunities to find a piece of the available $500 billion in government grants.

    If you're new to the grant writing process or have applied for grants in the past but had difficulties, Grant Writing For Dummies gives you fast and easy access to discover how to separate yourself from the pack and secure your grant in a slow, post-recession economy; advice for NGOs (non-government organizations) and NPOs (non-profit organizations) seeking assistance in the non-domestic grant arena; information on applying online for e-grants; formatting suggestions for a clean and organized e-application; step-by-step instruction for registering with and using Grants.gov, the largest online federal grant database; lists and recommendations for up-to-date grant opportunities via newly created Web sites and databases; strategic advice for grant writers during research, program design, and the application process, in order to keep current with the increasing expectations of granting boards; and more.

    • Ready-to-use phrases for every successful proposal
    • Guidance on locating available grants, carefully applying, and ultimately winning grants for both non-profit and for-profit grant seekers
