Step-by-step guidance, insider tips, and all the tools needed to create the kind of budgets and financial plans that win grants Grants are a major source of funding in the nonprofit sector, and nonprofits invest considerable time, effort, and resources into obtaining them. A key aspect of any successful grant application initiative is budgeting and financial planning. Unfortunately, many nonprofit professionals lack the know-how required to create budgets that instill grantors with confidence. This book gives it to them, and much more. Authors James Aaron Quick and Cheryl Carter New walk readers through the entire budgeting process, providing invaluable insider tips, guidelines, and rules of thumb. More importantly, they arm readers with a complete, step-by-step budgeting system, with each step fully documented and accompanied by an arsenal of powerful tools. - Includes a computer disk containing the full range of budget forms accepted by federal agencies in Word for Windows format

JAMES AARON QUICK and CHERYL CARTER NEW are President and CEO, respectively, of Polaris Corporation, a grants consulting business that focuses on grants to organizations. They have developed and tested their training design through a series of seminars given throughout the world.
