Chapter one helped clarify grant terminology that I may run into while conducting grant research and filling out grant applications. I found this useful because I now have a better understanding of what certain grants are looking for and the grant language that is needed. This chapter also helped me learn how to set up a plan for keeping track of the grants I am working on and helped set up the process. The second chapter goes over how to create and complete funding plans for each grant. It stresses that without a plan it is difficult to have a successful grant process. This chapter has useful suggestions on what to look for within an organization to decide where funding is needed. The third chapter reviewed grantlish. This chapter was helpful because it also will help me use the correct grant terms and learn when you use them. It also covers helpful terms to use in proposals and the body of grant.

The most useful part of this chapter was the explanations of each type of government grant and what they offer. This will help me with my grant research so that I know what types of government grants are useful for our organization.

Chapter six is probably going to be the most useful fo...

Chapter twenty-two covers the ten tips for organizing your writing. I thought the best tip was to collect your information first then write. It stressed how important it is to have everything you need for each section of the grant gathered before you start writing. This makes it so that you do not have to stop and start the process. Chapter twenty-three covers the ten ways to personalize your request. I found this chapter interesting because it had some interesting suggestions such as sign your name in a green pen or have colored paper. This helps you stick out from the rest of the applications. Chapter twenty-four covers ten tips for handling a rejection notice. The best tips were to not cry and to not give up. I think that I will probably cry but will not give up. I think that every grant will be a learning process.
