Great Resource

I picked up this book the week before I started my first grant writing job and boy was I glad! I knew the organization relatively well, and combined with the insights this book gave me I was able to be successful, winning one major and several minor grants for the organization within my first four months. This book is perfect for grant writers, but there is certainly the bigger picture of fundraising that you ought to be aware of, especially if you are in a small organization. The book's title seemed a bit grandiose to me, but it lived up to its name.

The Best

This really IS the only grant- writing book you'll ever need. It's an extremely helpful book that is both readable as well as comprehensive. The websites are exhaustive, the appendix material useful, the glossary of terms highly technical and inclusive, and the interviews with funders are unique. All in all - a gem.

Superb -- readable, direct, informative

These two professional grantseekers provide a very helpful perspective for both newcomers to the grants world and those with experience. The grantmakers interviews are particularly helpful, and the honest and unpretentious style of the book make it an enjoyable read. I sought the book out as a guide for some volunteer grantwriting I was doing. It was the only guide I used, and it helped me win a $50,000 grant!

A Handbook Way Overdue

Having pursued many grants over the years, I anguish at the number of hours I could have saved with only a bit of the wisdom offered in Karsh and Fox's book. Herein we learn not only canny methodology, but correct protocols and language to keep our proposals off the junk heap. Most remarkably, the material is presented in a jaunty style which belies the notion that grant-writing (or -reading) has to be an onerous or dryasdust task. "Realty checks" may spare you the agony of wondering whether your proposal dropped into a black hole. You can't write a successful grant proposal without inhabiting the mind of a grantmaker, and even failed proposals can fuel you for the next, successful foray. I wouldn't dream of attempting another grant without this book at my side. Buy it!
