Master Grant Writing: A Project Manager’s Guide
by La Juana Chambers Lawson, edited/published by Christopher Herring and River Walk Publishing LLC.

$25.00

There are many approaches to successful grant writing. There is no one-size-fits-all in successful grant writing. Grant writing is a misnomer; it’s a totally inaccurate and incomplete though really common reference to an entire profession that can only be understood as the sum of several parts. Grant writing involves the mastery of the following parts of the whole:

  • Project management
  • Staging the entity or readying the organization
  • Digital inclusion
  • Collaboration
  • Governance.

This book endeavors to disentangle grant writing with real-life examples of what to do (as well as what not to do) as it relates to pursuing and writing grants.

Editorial Reviews

Review

I wholeheartedly agree that in order for the grant process to work, the whole nonprofit board must be totally committed. This book is exemplary. It’s a quick and insightful read that I have added to my agency’s strategic planning reference guide.

From the Author

In the real world, effective decision-makers actively hedge their bets to increase their likelihood of success. Pursuing grants is a risky endeavor that usually does not produce gains or rewards that efficiently recover what was invested. This book should be read in advance of pursuing grants, no matter the industry or scope of work, in order to gain a more circumspect, inclusive, and technological perspective of what all grant writing entails from a learned professional and entrepreneur who consults organizations throughout the world to and through success one project at a time.

This book comes signed by author La Juana Chambers Lawson. You can include a dedication/inscription by using the field below.

    If you're founding or working with a new nonprofit organization, you know that grant funding can help nonprofits tremendously. How can you start grant writing in a way that guarantees success? Many nonprofits focus on first finding a volunteer or paid consultant who can write the grant application. However, the author, a project management professional (PMP) who has launched a successful nonprofit, explains in an accessible way that you need to start earlier and think about grant submissions from a project management perspective. La Juana Chambers Lawson outlines five basic principles in her book: First: Don't think of writing a grant as a one-off task, approach it as if you are managing a project...because you are. Second: Is your organization even ready for its first grant submission? What do you need to do first? Third: Have you planned for digital inclusion in your approach? Fourth: Collaboration and stakeholder engagement-- yes, you'll need all this to submit a winning grant. Fifth: Is your organization's governance in tip-top shape and why does that matter for grants? As you begin the bewildering process of writing grants, please read this book to help you understand what's needed first for the best outcomes. It'll help your nonprofit organization start off on the right foot with a clear intent to succeed. --Iris Gonzalez
