Guide to Funding Research

Body: 
Courtesy of Foundation Center.org If you are a first-time grant seeker, a new nonprofit staff or board member, or a volunteer for your favorite charity, this online guide was created with you in mind. It is intended both as a basic primer on the grant seeking process and as an introduction to some of the resources available with a special emphasis on those issued by the Foundation Center. If you prefer not to read the guide online, feel free to download sections for your own personal use. We cover foundations in detail, but we also talk about corporate and government funders as well as individual donors. Researching funders that will turn out to be good prospects takes time, but the results should be well worth this investment. Be realistic in your expectations. Foundations and other grant makers cannot meet all or even most of your financial needs. The vast majority of the money given to nonprofit organizations is actually donated by individuals. Foundations and corporations combined currently provide approximately 16.5 percent of all philanthropic gifts, but their grants can make up an important part of your support . . . view more
