Dr. Sigrid Trombley, Grants Specialist at Wichita Public Schools, posted the following message to the Bring Home the Bacon listserv about the Let's Write a Grant CD:

If you're serious about learning to write grants, you won't find a better resource than the "Let's Write a Grant" CD that was created by and is marketed and sold by Donna Fernandez, the list owner/manager for our "Bring Home the Bacon" listserve. I've been to numerous workshops (some VERY expensive), classes and conference presentations (and done a few of my own) on grant development/grant writing and honestly, none were any better than what you'll get from Donna's CD and many pale in comparison. And the best part? The "Let's Write a Grant" CD only costs $55 (includes shipping). That's an unbelievable value. Your district should be willing to purchase this resource, but if it's not, it's worth paying for out of your own pocket. It's the best $55 a school grant writer can spend. By the way, this is a great resource even if you're an experienced grant writer. I'd recommend it to every list member.

If you want an even better bargain, you can also subscribe to Donna's SchoolGrants Biweekly Newsletter (normally $45/year) but available as a package with the Let's Write a Grant CD for $89.95. For more information, go to the School Grants website:

http://www.schoolgrants.org/ and click on the "Let's Write a Grant" CD or Newsletters links.

[By the way, Donna hasn't asked me to post this nor does she even know I'm doing so. My endorsement is totally my own.]

Dr. Trombley and Wichita Public Schools provide a great deal of grant writing help on their Grants Central Station Web site at http://www.usd259.com/grants/index.html. Take time for a tour!

Marble Falls ISD's Director of Grants Development, Beth Quarles, said this after receiving her Let's Write a Grant CD:

Donna - I love the CD... Best buy ever!!!!! This will be my most asked-after resource material.

Order a copy of the Let's Write a Grant CD and get started on the path to writing competitive grant proposals for your school or district!
