Beverly A. Browning, Beverly A. Browning, Dummies von Beverly. I have never been very entertained by the"______ for Dummies" tracks used in so many books of this kind and I was willing to see this as another way to try to sell one. Though it seemed that writer Browning had a well-written answer for just about any query I could think of.
Side by side presented ideas for ideas on how to make a proposal that would attract the interest of a school. How was it possible for a single individual to consider so many different issues associated with writing a proposal? It uses a system of border graphs to guide you to important topics such as tips, reminders and warnings.
It is subdivided into sections presented in the order in which the idea must be taken into account when a proposal is prepared - Positioning Up....., Instanding the Rules...., Inserting Together Your Grant Application, REACH the Finish Line.... etc. I' m particularly fond of Part V of the volume - The Part of Tens - which contains a range of sections, each containing a sentence of 10 core concepts (Ten ways to personalise your query, Ten grants writing no no no's, Ten data collection tips, etc.) The volume closes with two full samples of grants application narratives so you can see what a good proposal looks like.
This is an outstanding resource that you will use over and over again - every new idea you discover to help you prepare an application for funding. Mysteries of Successful Grantsmanship: A Guerrilla Guide to Moneyby Susan L. Golden. It is a completely different way of approaching the whole funding procurement process.
Instead of concentrating on the stages involved in writing a proposal, the writer Golden puts the focus (and accordingly!) on creating a solid base that takes care of doing everything possible to obtain the necessary financing - how to carry out efficient prospectus research, open the right door, make the first interview a reality, discuss the proposal with a potential donor, etc.).
Lastly, section 7 deals with "Preparation and submission of your application for funding". "But by then, that's it - raising funds for your projects is much more than just a paper application. We will share your own experience and many good suggestions and good practices on how you can successfully help your work.
Jane C. Geever, The Foundation Center's Guide to Proposal Writing von Jane C. Geever. I' ve found this to be a true jewel. It is organised around a series of six stages, which the writer uses as an organisational frame to take you forward in the writing of a proposal. The six stages are founded on the concept that a proposal does not just represent a single proposal, but is part of an overall planing, research, mediation and cultivating a prospective donor:
Determination of grant application priority, 2 Preparation of the base application, 3 Packaging of the application (understanding of grant priorities), 4 Research of prospective sponsors, 5 Establishment of contacts and maintenance of prospective sponsors and 6. It is the outcome of a set of in-depth discussions conducted by the writer with 39 grant recipients, who represent a wide range of different kinds and dimensions of endowments and other grantors.
It contains a number of very vivid samples that show the readers exactly what a certain paper, a certain kind of target, a certain kind of target, etc. looks like. The annexes contain a commented list of lists and guidelines useful to the applicant, a proposal of an example and quotations from donors in reply to the author's question ("Who should subscribe to the deed?
I wasn't sure at first if I would add this one. Finally, it is really NOT aimed at writing proposals. But once I read the script, I liked it very much. Also, the writer does an magnificent job with point-to-point motion, explaining all the thought that needs to go into a fund-raising campaig.
Beginning with some basic information on teleanthropy, the remainder of the volume guides you through the many things you need to consider when trying to motivate others to give money to your organisation - diversify resources, understand why to give to others, how to make a powerful case study for your organisation, how to attract (and retain) donators, organise specific activities and even how to make a living thank-you note.
It is well thought-out and allows you to draw up a very structured schedule - which can of course also involve making a proposal. It can be very useful for a volunteer organisation. Support Centers of America's Complete Workbook for Design, Developing, and Writing Successful Proposals by Mim Carlson.
In Activist's Guide to Proposal Writing von Andy Robinson. It is organised around a number of areas which seem to be very important for the development of a good proposal. Titles of chapters contain things like "Why men (and foundations) give their funds away", "The need to organize" and "Build your proposal piece by piece".
But it is difficult to jump around in the band, as the writer tells many samples, individual narratives and tales from his own work. This is a good read if you are just beginning to make a suggestion and are not sure where you are going. When you are looking to fill the loopholes in your proposal, you may find the textbook a little annoying, as it is not suitable for movement and easy to find certain information to help you.
