Q. How do I find sources of funding for nonprofits?


Finding funding opportunities is challenging. Here are a couple strategies you might try.

  1. The library Reference Collection has several books on grant funding. To locate them go to the Library Home Page and click on Library catalog. Then click on Advanced Keyword Search on the right. Type in grant* (asterisk serves as a wild card). Then, in the Optional Limits box pull-down menu, click on Reference Collection. This will bring up a list of books with funding opportunities. Many of these are directories. Some are older, but the information in them is often still relevant.
  2. A second strategy, specifically aimed at finding corporate funding opportunities, is to Google "corporate philanthropy" (in quotes) along with the relevant type of nonprofit endeavor (e.g. arts, "social services"). This will bring up a wide variety of results. Look for organizations dedicated to corporate giving, companies that fund specific areas, etc.
