Book News
This accessible guide for grant seekers explains how to transform weak grant proposals into strong contenders for funding. Each chapter begins with an example illustrating one of a number of problems commonly found in grant proposals. Fundraising consultants Clarke and Fox then point out flaws in the sample narrative and demonstrate how they may be corrected. Some of the mistakes addressed include florid writing, lack of a good match with funders' guidelines, and ineffective use of statistics. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
