At the beginning of the 1980s, available grants from federal and private sources totaled around $80 billion. In 1999, it is estimated that figure will have increased by more than three times, to nearly $250 billion. David Bauer's new edition of The "How To" Grants Manual is an essential guide for grantseekers who want to successfully navigate recent changes in the marketplace. This renowned author shares valuable insight into the grantseeking process while providing a helpful "get organized" book. Additionally, the fourth edition has been updated to include advice on ways to use the Internet when seeking grants.

When the federal government balanced its budget in 1998, one result was an increase in the amount of available grant money. Economic forecasts call for more of the same into the next century. The "How To" Grants Manual explains important nuances behind the numbers and provides the savvy grantseeker with essential information about changes in the marketplace.

This useful guide puts grantseekers on the right track using a simple, three-part approach that offers advice on:

  • Part 1: Funding differences between private and public sectors,
  • and which tools and methods are most useful.
  • Part 2: The best ways to win a federal grant.
  • Part 3: Funding differences between foundations and corporations,
  • and how to approach the private sector.

The "How To" Grants Manual packages its proven methods together with worksheets, sample letters, an extensive list of resources, and a practical step-by-step outline on preparing a proposal--all in one helpful "get organized" book.

Do foundations advertise their programs on the World Wide Web? Can applications be found online? These questions and more are answered in the latest edition, which offers new information on ways to use the Internet.

Libraries will spend their budgets wisely on The "How To" Grants Manual because of its wide appeal. Grantseekers from higher education, nonprofit organizations, agencies, and other groups comprise this book's diverse and multifaceted audience.
