About our publications…

“I wish I had this book five years ago, when I first spent countless hours scouring the Foundation Center's publications for US funders that would consider proposals from groups serving low-income, vulnerable populations in "human settlement" areas of Peru. Your directory is outstanding, a tremendous tool for community groups everywhere, and a "must have" for administrators, program planners and development officers in overseas projects. The chapters on selecting funders and tips on how to prepare a proposal are particularly useful.”

— Sister Joan D. Mahon, MSSW


“MPS Funding Guide is by far the most practical and user-friendly source of information for persons engaged in projects needing outside help to supplement local efforts at sustainable progress in education and other means of fostering genuine development”

— Br. Francis Blouin, FIC, Founder, Kisubi Brothers University Centre, Kisubi, Uganda


“If Arc-en-Ciel exists, it is because of your book, which allowed me to present the project. The first organizations to respond were located with the help of your book.”

— Mrs. Danielle Pénette, Director of Arc-en-Ciel, a home and treatment center for HIV-Aids affected children, Haiti


“I am writing to tell you how priceless your publication is for non-profit organizations like ours which work to improve the lives of impoverished people in Cameroon.”

— Honorine, Essengue Ad Lucem Foundation


“Your directory is almost a Bible overseas. Thanks so much for doing it.”

— Girard J. Kohler, CSSp

What they say about our workshops…

“MPS staff is generous in sharing their knowledge, experience and expertise. A million thanks! The group is enthusiastic to learn. The workshop is worthwhile and practical to everyone. Participants who are experts can even learn something new and they are eager to help others in their group.”

— Participant at Madang, Papua New Guinea


“It seems not too long ago that you helped us with the workshop at Pattaya. Please know that it has been helpful in our ministries. All three project proposals which I wrote got funding…”

— Sister Genoveva Dumay, RGS, Manilla, Philippines


“Thank you for allowing Casey Rogers and me to attend the grant-writing workshop in Quito, Ecuador. Casey and I both found it very worthwhile. Your methodology of how to develop, compose and present projects to funding agencies is very helpful: having participants bring real projects is practical; having them work in groups where they learn from each other creates a sense of mutuality, as is the mentoring you do in the small groups. The general sessions not only helped the participants to fine-tune their own projects, but enabled them to learn new ideas for potential projects and experience the group develop skills. Along with appreciating your methodology, I want to affirm the clarity of presentation, the modeling you do of Church women and men working together in mutuality, as well as your apparent passion for the work, appreciation of the ministries of sisters and infinite patience and good humor.”

— Sister Joyce Meyer, PBVM, Executive Director, Conrad N. Hilton Fund for Sisters
