Thou Shalt Not Lie About Grants: Learning the Craft of Grant-Writing by Mark Klosterman

Thou Shalt Not Lie About Grants: Learning the Craft of Grant-Writing by Mark Klosterman

Don't let the title of this book deceive you. Because it does tell the truth about so-called 'free money' and the world of government grants. But debunking cyberspace fallacies is only a subplot. After setting the stage and the record straight, this guide-book is a sweeping yet straightforward script about the craft of writing grants and courting foundations. Although the book's tone is somewhat tongue-in-cheek, it applies a no-nonsense style to the faithful world of grants and how to win their hearts.

This primer on grant writing includes 40 rules not to break, explains the difference between courting government agencies, private foundations, and corporations, and discusses strategies for writing your grant proposal.

A note from the author:


As you may or may not know, there are a lot of scams on the Internet regarding government grants, as well as companies (especially in Nevada) that make false promises to people that DO NOT have legitimate 501c3 nonprofit status that is officially sanctioned by the IRS. Despite not having this status, these companies sell lists of foundations for thousands of dollars that will never award a grant to you, unless you have a bona fide charitable organization. To get the proper guidance in this area, and to learn the craft of grant-writing, you may want to purchase "Thou Shalt Not Lie About Grants: Learning the Craft of Grant-Writing", which you can purchase by visiting HERE
