How to Find Grants

Your winning grant proposal starts before you write the first word.

It starts with solid grant research. You want to ask the right funder for the right amount at the right time.


How do I find my best prospects?

Do you know which grants are the "best" for your nonprofit?

Just like you, 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 funder's capacity for giving so you'll know if they are able to give at the level you're seeking.

I don't know how to find my best grant prospects.

Once you've identified your best prospects, your next challenge is deciding how much to request from each individual funder. 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.

I don't have time to find my best grant prospects.
