Summary

As general education funds are continuously being reduced and eliminated, more educators are going to have to fund their new programs and initiatives through grants. But most books on grant writing either are not specifically for educators or don't cover all the steps to getting and implementing grant money in a school situation.

That's why any educator who leads an initiative, heads a committee, chairs a department, manages a team, or coordinates a program will want this A-Z guide. The authors guide you through the steps to take before, during, and after you write a winning proposal, including

  • Locating grant sponsors that match your needs and understanding the "grant speak" in their Request for Proposals (RFP)
  • Writing a persuasive proposal that states your case with data and incorporates the assumptions and biases of potential funders
  • Establishing the system and structures to manage your grant money
  • Developing a plan to assess your use of grant funds and to prove your success

At each step, there are frameworks, checklists, and rubrics to help you use and adapt this book's guidelines and advice in any kind of education and social service situation.
