A Look Inside Foundation Decision-Making
July 26, 2012
Rob Bruno reviews Martin Teitel's new book for Philanthropy Front and Center New York:
Martin Teitel's Thank You for Submitting Your Proposal (Emerson & Church, 2006) has been a staple for grantseekers wishing to get an inside view of a foundation's decision-making process. Six years later he has revised the classic work with The Ultimate Insider's Guide to Winning Foundation Grants: A Foundation CEO Reveals the Secrets You Need to Know (Emerson & Church, 2012). The new book continues along the same vein, but expands upon the original by adding a section titled "Myths About Foundations" as well as a concluding chapter that offers answers to hard-nosed questions from grantees.
You can find the book in all five Foundation Center libraries.
