Description

'The Grant and Fundraising Helper' concerns itself with activating community growth through the creation of successful grant applications. Traditional and non-traditional methods of funding are explored in this small but powerful book written by an experienced entrepreneur and community leader who has often found herself on the raising part of funds. Griffiths helps readers find, apply for, and get grants. She also looks at various forms of crowdfunding, as well as online auctions and other innovative ways of funding projects and organizations.
Writing grants, and succinctly illustrating community concepts is a challenge sometimes made more overwhelming by experts’ advice. It's the author's belief that people respond well to visual and tactile messages and the size, style and format of the book should, to some extent, reflect the same elements put forward in the book for a successful application: brevity, pleasure reading style, providing opportunities for funders and keeping big concepts simple.
The Grant Writing and Funding Coach is a framework for you to present your project in a clear and confident style, establish a rapport with funders and succeed with your proposal. It reveals how individuals, non-profits, local governments, and community organizations build bridges with funders.
In this small but powerful book, you’ll find short narrative and budget summaries for your review and checklists for staying organized while you’re going through the application process. Both traditional and non-traditional methods of funding are explored by an experienced entrepreneur and community leader. Griffiths helps readers find, apply for, and get grants. She also looks at various forms of crowd-funding and walks you through a crowdfunding campaign, as well as online auctions and other innovative ways of funding projects and organizations. The message is simple — believe in your project and funders will too!
