Proposal Writing
Effective Grantsmanship for Funding

Sixth Edition

November 2021 | 184 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
The updated Sixth Edition of the best-selling Proposal Writing: Effective Grantsmanship for Funding offers a fresh, robust presentation of the basics of program design and proposal writing for community services funding. Authors Soraya M. Coley, Cynthia A. Scheinberg, and new co-author Yulia A. Levites Strekalova help readers develop the knowledge they need to understand community agencies, identify and describe community needs, identify funding sources, develop a viable program evaluation, prepare a simple line-item budget, and write a compelling need statement. The jargon-free, step-by-step presentation makes the book as useful to students in the university classroom as to first-time grant writers in the nonprofit setting. The new edition adds activities that can be done individually or in class to build students' skills and apply the chapter material.
