Don't get me wrong--I like bake sales too. I love a good bundt cake as much as the next parent.
But how many bundt cakes, muffins, cookies and streusels would it take to raise $1,000? Or $5,000? Or $20,000?
That's why grants are lifesavers for many schools and districts. Grants for those amounts are very possible.
But to be awarded those dollars, grant writers need to know two things:
1) How to write convincing applications
2) Which foundations to approach
The great news is there's a resource that helps with both. It's the One Minute Funding newsletter from Imagine Learning--and it's free!

- How to convince the reader you're dead-serious about getting results

- How to doubt your way to success
- The easy way to "mind-read" a foundation and learn how much they'll fund
Plus, you'll receive the latest funding news from Washington so you can make the wisest budgeting decisions possible.
