"Ideas are products of individual human minds. Some of the ideas that emerge in educational, cultural, health-related, community, service, and faith-based organizations are potentially as important to the institutions as their endowments. These ideas are the concern of this guidebook: how to encourage their articulation, how to muster the cooperation necessary to turn them into formal blueprints, and how to secure whatever support is needed to see them materialize as projects serving the interests of the originators and their institutions. Designed for grant seekers in the digital age, this book helps readers make sense of the various printed and Web-based resources that are available to improve the quality of proposals and find successful funding. The chapters cover origins and early development of an idea, drawing up a proposal, finding funding sources, submitting a proposal, evaluation of a project, grant administration, and basic resources."
