How to find foundation grant opportunities for your nonprofit
Do you know which grants are the "best" for your nonprofit?
Just like you, foundation grantmakers have specific goals and interest areas...and limitations.
It's critical to match your organization's mission and your program's goals to the grantmaker's giving priorities. It's also important to know a foundation's capacity for giving so you'll know if they are able to give at the level you're seeking.

Once you've identified your best prospects, your next challenge is deciding how much to request from each individual foundation. A common mistake is to ask for what you need instead of what the funder is likely to give.
Your chances for grant success improve dramatically when you ask the right funders for the right amount at the right time.
