This book is a work of conscience. It is the product of a long-standing feeling of obligation on my part to write something useful for a special group of people to which you probably belong-individuals who seek grants. In my years as Director of the New York library of The Foundation Center, * each and every day I encountered numbers of individuals look ing for grant money. Although I tried to be as supportive as possible, in the face of the particular problems shared by this group of library users, my own reaction was one of relative helplessness. Simply stated, most of the fund-raising guides, printed directories, and computer files purport edly created to serve the fund-raising public are of little or no use to individuals who seek funding on their own. These resources are directed *The Foundation Center is the independent, nonprofit organization established by foun dations to provide information for the grant-seeking public. vii viii I PREFACE toward the nonprofit, tax-exempt agency, which is the most common recipient of foundation, corporate, and government largess. They are not designed to respond to the special requirements of the individual grant seeker. In the applicant eligibility index, the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance defines individuals as "homeowners, students, farmers, artists, scientists, consumers, small-business persons, minors, refugees, aliens, veterans, senior citizens, low-income persons, health and educational professionals, builders, contractors, developers, handicapped persons, the physically afflicted." In short, practically everyone qualifies.

Activists beyond Borders

Advocacy Networks in International Politics

Author: Margaret E. Keck,Kathryn Sikkink

Publisher: Cornell University Press

ISBN: 0801471281

Category: Political Science

Page: 240

View: 9178

In Activists beyond Borders, Margaret E. Keck and Kathryn Sikkink examine a type of pressure group that has been largely ignored by political analysts: networks of activists that coalesce and operate across national frontiers. Their targets may be international organizations or the policies of particular states. Historical examples of such transborder alliances include anti-slavery and woman suffrage campaigns. In the past two decades, transnational activism has had a significant impact in human rights, especially in Latin America, and advocacy networks have strongly influenced environmental politics as well. The authors also examine the emergence of an international campaign around violence against women.

These guidelines explore financing options for protected areas and provide advice and information on sustainable financing.

A step-by-step process is given which protected area managers can use to create business and financial plans tailored to the needs and strengths of their protected area. Mechanisms are discussed for generating revenue flows from both public and private sources and an overview of potential grant-based sources of financing is given. It concludes with case studies demonstrating how protected area managers worldwide have developed cohesive funding strategies.

Best Practices in Grant Seeking

Beyond the Proposal

As the competition for private foundation dollars becomes increasingly more intense, nonprofit organizations are struggling to find competent grant writers who can show results. But even a perfectly written proposal, or a highly qualified grant writer, cannot guarantee funding. Best Practices in Grant Seeking: Beyond the Proposal explores how to involve an organization’s leadership in the grant seeking process, and how to work together with staff from public relations, program,s and even other fundraising areas, to make the grant proposal process more fruitful. The best practices in this book can help nonprofit officials determine agency-wide activities – both short and long term – that support and enhance the efforts of the grant writer and that will ultimately improve the amount and number of grants receive from foundations by building long-lasting relationships with funders, accessing the power of their communities, and establishing internal communication and cooperation.
