Most recently, Coral has partnered with some of the nonprofit industry’s leading voices in Amazon’s #1 Best Seller 101 Biggest Mistakes Nonprofits Make and How You Can Avoid Them. In addition to outlining some of the biggest mistakes organizations make while grant-seeking, she also provides tips and tricks on how to avoid them.
