clear, precise and easy to use

I was struggling through a master's level grant writing course and hitting snag after snag in my own grant writing project. The text books for the course provided contradictory and confusing information that on the whole did not apply to the actual process of grant writing. I gave up and purchased Grant Writing for Dummie. I only wish I had gotten this book earlier. The book is well organized and walks you through the often convoluted process of researching, writing and submitting grant proposals. I appreciated the clear writing and colorful examples of how to phrase and document a grant proposal. I recommended the book to the professor but he was less than enthusiastic about the idea of replacing the standard class textbooks.

Non-Profit Handbook for Excellence

When approached to provide grant writing services, I thought I couldn't do it, then I found this book.After purchasing, I picked a day to study this book completely and found it wasn't needed. The best feature is the easy reference format, I could simply flip to what I needed and work from there.The web site listings, foundation break-downs and overall content got me on the right track.This book will be helpful only if you are seeking a grant for a non-profit. I searched elsewhere for information on sponsorships and other available funding.What is offered are the absolute basics for getting started on grant writing. Companies will not give your paper or proposal a second glance if you don't take the time to research their specific guidelines.Buy this book, do your homework and you just might get that grant. It's a far better investment than the internet rip-offs for thirty of more dollars that claim to tell you how to get a grant.From experience, I'll tell you now, there are no guarantees, each company decides, and this book will be a foot in the door.


I've been writing grants on my own for a few years with a very high success rate. I bought this book because I am about to embark on writing some large requests for foundation and federal funding. I was hoping to learn a few more tips from an expert. Boy did I get my money's worth! I wish I would have read this book before I wrote my first grant! There are tons of tips. The book is well written in a smart format that makes it quick and easy to read. I'll definitely use it for a reference text for years to come. Thanks Beverly Browning!

I have confidence now.I am a grant writer! Thank you Bev Browning.

A Very Helpful Guide to Writing Winning Grants!

One of the very best books I have seen on the ins and outs of writing winning grant proposals. Not just the usual information about the components of a typical application, but a comprehensive approach to obtaining grant funds including planning, researching, developing, writing and coordinating the whole grant process. Ms. Browning even includes important post-grant activities such as following up once the grant has been submitted. I found this guide priceless.
