Grants are a very important source of funds for most not-for-profits. Billions of dollars is provided each year by local, state and federal governments, as well as philanthropic, community and corporate trusts and foundations. The trick is knowing how to get your share.

You need to know what your group wants to do, and you need to know who might provide the sort of grants that could fit those aims. Our grants database may help you find grants, but there's a lot more needed to win them. Our tools, checklists and helpsheets will help you get grants ready, write sparkling applications, and help fund your next project.
