Barbara has over 40 years' experience managing nonprofits, writing grant proposals, and administering grants. She has raised millions of dollars in grant funding, served as a reviewer for federal grant competitions, trained thousands of nonprofit staff members throughout the US and internationally, and has testified before Congress on the reauthorization of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Floersch was a trainer for the Grantsmanship Center from 2000 to 2021 and served as the Center's Chief of Training and Curriculum for 12 years until her retirement in January of 2021. She has published hundreds of articles, has been a regular contributor to the NonProfit Times, and is the author of Grantsmanship: Program Planning & Proposal Writing, the updated, expanded edition of Norton Kiritz's seminal work in the field.

Barbara's new book, You Have A Hammer: Building Grant Proposals for Social Change, was released January 26, 2021 and is available at Amazon and other sites where books are sold. Her new website includes information on her books, a blog, and links to grant-related resources.
