It took 100 years, but at last a quintessential insider has stepped forward to shed light on the ‘black box” of foundations.
Martin Teitel has been a foundations director for nearly 30 years. And in this book he is on the grantseeker's side! Thank You for Submitting Your Proposal is filled with insights, hard truths and valuable advice. Each page has a message that is critically important to improve your chances of winning that grant. Here are some Don'ts Teitel cautions grantseekers against:
Don't devote most of your proposal to an exposition of the problem, not the solution
Don't create confusion about the strategy you are pursuing
Don't assume that your ideas are so outstanding that they sell themselves
Read on to discover the do's, the who's, the why's and the therefore's!
