Lawe, Theodore M.
Directed toward groups, organizations, and programs dependent on effective fund raising, this book views the grant management responsibility as an extension of fund-raising and offers advice on how to be successful at grant management. Such topics as grant program organization, management strategies, fiscal controls, monitoring, reporting and evaluation, and organizational development are discussed. Specific chapters deal with: types of funding grants, how to find grant sources, pre-application process (fund-raising strategy), grant proposal and application preparation, how grant proposals are reviewed, grant program management, contract research, and program evaluation. A sample request for proposal (RFP) and sample proposal are included. Appendices include information on unique features of community trust foundations, corporate donations, Foundation Center collections, state foundation directors, checklists for assessing an organization's funding capacity, the A-95 review process, proposal development checklist, federal grant negotiation, communication strategies for nonprofit community-based organizations, local government grant procurement tips, personal approach to fund-raising campaigns, Title XX social service programs, securing CETA funds, program management and managers, and volunteer boards of directors.
