Though primarily to be used in conjunction with a workshop, the guide can also be used independently by readers with limited experience in preparing grant proposals, whether as staff or volunteer members of nonprofit organizations or seeking funds for their own creative project. The disc contains additional sample grant requests. There is no index. No date is noted for the first edition.
