"Susan Golden provides not just another book on proposal writing, but one which provides a realistic view of proposal writing with practical step-by-step guidance towards success -- useful for both novice and experienced grantwriters." (Patricia F. Lewis, ACFR, president and CEO, National Society of Fund Raising Executives) "Secrets of Successful Grantsmanship identifies the key element of fundraising -- relationships. In a high-tech world, organizations that raise money must be high-touch -- relationships are the best way: focused, disciplined, and persistent." (Anita D. Joseph, director, Association Financial Development, YMCA of the USA) "Success in fundraising is not about how money was given, it is about raising friends and building relationships between the community that needs services and the organizations that provide them. Susan Golden offers the same guarantee for success with grantmakers -- make them your friends and build lasting relationships." (James M. Greenfield, ACFRE, FAHP, senior vice president, Development and Community Relations, Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian) "The presentation in this book is unusually clear and direct -- it asks all the right questions and provides understandable real world answers." (Bruce A. Loessin, vice president, Development, Case Western Reserve University) "Armed with the step-by-step approach of Secrets of Successful Grantsmanship, you will not only significantly improve your success rate as a grantwriter, but you will also learn how to avoid wasting time on 'long shots.'" (Kenneth W. McLaughlin, president and CEO, Greater Cleveland YMCA) "In an era when organizations focus on short term results, Secrets of Successful Grantsmanship highlights for the practicing professional the application of 'The Relationship' (advocacy) plan of action versus 'The Transaction' (get the grant and go) mentality. Golden frames the process with skill and practical understanding." (Jon Labahn, prin
