Published for development officers, nonprofit board members, fundraising consultants, and others in pursuit of grants from U.S. foundations, this guide provides real-world proposals that resulted in funding for a variety of needs, including general operating support, program development, staff salaries, and program evaluation. The featured proposals request anywhere from $5,000 to $500,000 in funding and were approved by international grantmakers such as the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, large regional funders such as the Robert W. Woodruff Foundation, corporate donors such as the Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation, and local funders (including family foundations).
