Grants for non-fiction books; July 7 order deadline on special deal.

Furthermore Program Offers Grants in Nonfiction Publishing

An initiative of the J.M. Kaplan Fund, the Furthermore program supports nonfiction book publishing about the city; natural and historic resources; art, architecture, and design; cultural history; and civil liberties and other public issues.

The program seeks work that appeals to an informed general audience; gives evidence of high standards in editing, design, and production; promises a reasonable shelf life; might not otherwise achieve top quality or even come into being; and "represents a contribution without which we would be the poorer."

Applicants must be 501(c)(3) organizations. Grant recipients have included civic and academic institutions, museums, independent and university presses, and professional societies. Trade publishers and public agencies may apply for grants in partnership with an eligible nonprofit sponsor. Applications from individuals are not accepted.

Grants range from $500 to approximately $15,000 each and may support writing, research, editing, design, indexing, photography, illustration, and printing and binding.
See the Furthermore Web site for complete program information and application form.

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. "
V. Issaev, Arts Ballet Theatre
