Quotes from satisfied customers:
"The book is very 'meat-y' and provides some excellent resources that I, as a five-year grant writer for youth programs, have not yet considered. The free gifts are especially thoughtful. So, thanks again! "
D. Heit, Youth Co-Op

"This book is a reliable source of information for non profit organizations who work with children. As our organization provides several educational and artistic programs we have been lucky to have Lisa Merritt as our grant writer and consultant. She is definitively an expert in her field. "
