Books: Making Relationships Last
Here, Margolin — who spent 21 years at the Foundation Center, where she authored and edited the center's series of how-to books on proposal writing and related topics — elaborates on "After the Grant."
FundRaising Success: Why create this book?
Judith Margolin: At the Foundation Center, we perceived a real need for this publication. After an extensive literature search, it was clear that while there were many books on how to get money from foundations, there was hardly anything in writing about what to do once you receive a grant. The book is really about stewardship, which is something that funders care about quite a bit — that is, effective management of someone else's money.
