Private funding sources are many and varied, so it is essential to match an institution’s needs with the individual interests of the foundation(s). The Foundation Center web site provides information on the Center’s regional libraries of materials on philanthropy, educational programs, analysis of funding trends, and other topics. Through its GrantSpace learning community, it offers in-person and online training as well as tools to support institutions exploring grants, preparing applications, and navigating the grantmaking landscape.
See the Proposal Writing Short Course for guidelines on how to write a successful grant proposal, including detailed advice on the information required by most funders for each section of your application.
