The Complete Guide To Crafting Proposals And Other Persuasive Pieces For Nonprof

Filled with tips and survival skills from writers and fund-raising officers at nonprofits of all sizes, Writing for a Good Cause is the first book to explain how to use words well to win your cause the money it needs. Whether you work for a storefront social action agency or a leading university, the authors' knowledgeable, practical advice will help you:
  • Write the perfect proposal -- from the initial research and interviews to the final product
  • Draft, revise, and polish a "beguiling, exciting, can't-put-it-down and surely can't-turn-it-down" request for funds
  • Create case statements and other big money materials -- also write, design, and print newsletters, and use the World Wide Web effectively
  • Survive last-minute proposals and other crises -- with the Down-and-Dirty Proposal Kit!

Writing for a Good Cause provides everything fund raisers, volunteers, staff writers, freelancers, and program directors need to know to win funds from individual, foundation, and corporate donors.
