"I was very pleased with how [this workshop]
turned out. At first I was unsure how useful an online workshop would be
but I found I learned just as much as in a classroom and actually
conversed with the other students more than in a traditional classroom--we
were able to share helpful information with each other. [The instructor]
had helpful suggestions and answers to all my questions. It was obvious
she really knew her field."

Grants are a key source of support for most nonprofit organizations, particularly new organizations or those starting new programs. This guide, developed out of a series of seminars, helps grantseekers develop a strategic plan for finding funds for their programs. It outlines how to develop a program that will receive funding, provides the best methods for writing a grant proposal, and includes a disk that will allow organizations to customize the forms and exercises in the book.
