Finding a Donor – Made Easy

Today, I would like to shine the spotlight on a great website / resource to access when looking for potential grant-makers – The Grantsmanship Center!  Here's are several benefits that make this group (TGCI) so valuable:

1) Search for Proposals / Proposals by Subject.  Imagine – being able to find and read Abstracts (Executive Summaries) of Winning Grant Proposals!  The groups that actually received the money – on-line and at no cost.  You can gain invaluable insight into how to craft a winning proposal by reading the Abstracts that interest you.  You can also order – for a modest price – the Library of Winning Grants on a CD-ROM.

2) Find Grant Resources for your State.  I was looking for potential donors in my home state – California.  Click here and you will find links to: Top 40 California Foundations that Give Grants; California Community Foundations; California-based Corporate Giving Programs, etc.  Wow!  TGCI has neatly collected and organized all of the major sources of funding for your state on one page.  Research was never so easy!  Thanks TGCI!

3) Access to a library of great articles and training tools to help you to improve your skills in grantsmanship – most of them free or at low-cost.

Later this month I will go into some of these features in greater details.  We will explore a Winning Abstract – what made it stand out? and we will discuss Community Foundations and Corporate Giving strategies.

Please join me in giving a round of applause to The Grantsmanship Center!  They provide a great service to all of us.
