Want to drive social change?
Change the way you think about grants!
This is not another how-to book on crafting grant proposals. It’s a why-to book challenging grantseekers to embrace their power as social activists.
In 1949, Pete Seeger’s song If I Had a Hammer summoned us to re-purpose everyday work tools into tools for social justice. That call still resonates today.
This small but mighty primer will change how you develop grant proposals, will ignite renewed passion for your work, and will help you win more funding for things that matter.
Informed and conversational, this little gem of a book tells it like it is… and how it should be…This is the thinking person’s guide to reimagining the purpose of grant funding and how you can use it to move your organization’s mission forward to achieve change.
Michael Renner, Strategist at Missouri Foundation for Health
If you have anything to do with driving financial support for social change, whether just starting out or well into the life of your organization, I encourage you to read this book. Floersch’s call to action has changed the way I talk about our work – and that change is already bearing fruit.

Raising money for social change is more important than ever… But even the most passionate advocates won’t find the funds needed to drive impact without first understanding grants as tools for pursuit of the common good. This book is a great place to start.
