Collins has worked for the Foundation Center, a leading authority on organized philanthropy in the U.S., for some 20 years. She presents an updated guide to the foundation field and the funding research process, which also describes the tools, resources, and services available from the Foundation Center and from other sources to assist users in their quest for reliable information. The eighth edition has been revised to focus mainly on web resources to help users new to the field take advantage of cutting-edge technologies in their research. Figures, illustrations, and worksheets have been updated throughout the text to reflect the form and content of information resources for grant seekers and the best funding prospect research practices in use today, and all appendices have been updated with the most current information available.
