Winning Grants: How to Write Winning Grant Proposals That Will Get You Funding for Your Nonprofit
Works in an investment bank on a trading desk; has served as the Vice-Treasurer and Director of a small London Charity for 4 years As Vice-Treasurer, his main responsibilities are monitoring the charity’s finances, increasing financial sustainability, creating finance and expense policies, and assisting with strategic decision making. He has helped the charity double in size over the last four years through winning several high-profile grants, taking on new service contracts with local government bodies and the expansion of the management team.
This book is for leaders of small-to-mid sized nonprofits, primarily in the UK and USA, but can be read by anyone worldwide. It will help the reader raise more money for their nonprofit organisation. The book is structured into three parts or ‘stages’: the first provides an overview of the world of grants; it covers what a grant is, where to find one, potential grant-givers and what they look for, the second part (the main chunk of the book) shows the reader how exactly to write a winning grant proposal, and the third part shows the reader what not to do in grant-writing to increase the chances of winning, as well as provides a checklist / cheat sheet.
A leader of a recently formed nonprofit. A senior person at a small-to-mid sized nonprofit organisation who writes grant applications in order to gain funding for their nonprofit. The CEO of a nonprofit who is trying to raise money. Someone who works in the fundraising team or manages the fundraising team. A consultant who advises nonprofits on fundraising and helps them create grant applications. Really anyone who raises money for nonprofits through grants.
The series of books I am creating will be used to help leaders of recently formed nonprofits in the management of those nonprofits. Some example books will include grant writing, leadership for social impact and nonprofit marketing. The books will be packed with value and be somewhere between a non-fiction book and a guide/textbook. It needs to look professional and trustworthy but also eye-catching. People will be buying these books with a view to using them to get funding and make high-level strategic decisions so the book needs to scream 'authority'. A lot of the nonprofit books on Amazon follow a similar textbook and unimaginative style format so it is a great opportunity to stand out with something different. Please see attached word doc of book covers I like.

And then… they selected a winner!
Great design, Alek allowed his creativity to show, and wasn't held back by forcing his work to mimic the title of the book. Would use Alek again for future projects.
Along the way, they met lots of talented designers…
We think contests are a super fun way to get design.
