Aurora Native's New Book Is Money

Bruce Ripley is a grant writer and his new book shares tips and tricks to help non-profit organizations with successful grant writing.

(Aurora, Ind.) - An Aurora native and South Dearborn High School graduate is lending a helping hand to the public through his new book.

Bruce Ripley, 51, is the author “Get the Grant: Your No B.S. Introduction to Foundation Grants".

Co-authored by Ashley Cain, owner of Cain Non-Profit Solutions, the book looks at how to write winning grant proposals and give you the tools you need to start securing foundation funding for your nonprofit organization. The 107-page book provides useful tips, insights, and personal stories from the authors, which makes for a fantastic resource for those new to the field of grant writing as well as seasoned veterans.

“We released the book in February and is sold through Amazon,” Ripley said. “It was the No. 1 new release in its category for a few days after it was available.”

Ripley knows his stuff. He is a Grant Writer at Redwood, a non-profit special needs facility in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. He says his largest grant was for $570,000.

Aside from working at Redwood, Ripley is the sole proprietor of Ripley Communications and owns Painted Post Publications with Cain. Ripley is also a Marine Corps veteran. He currently resides in Loveland with his wife and two children. 

Ripley’s book is available now at
