Grant Seeking

How to Win Grants from Private Foundation Donors

Today, more than 1.5 million grant-seeking organizations in the United States compete for private foundation grants. Most nonprofits focus on the largest two percent of private foundations, those with hundreds of millions, even billions, of dollars. Yet the nation’s 84,000 other private foundations, which each hold less than $50 million in assets, are often overlooked. Join us to learn how to tap into smaller private foundations, which often make decisions more quickly, give grants in lump sums rather than multiple payments, have easier applications to complete, and fewer competing proposals submitted.
