In Their Words
Lots of quotes and direct paraphrases of what the funder says about their mission, vision, funding priorities, and application procedures
What is the corporation's business? Where did family get its money?
Organizing by Funder Lists by Deadlines Option
Need to know which funders have deadlines this month or next? We can do that.
Detailed Geographic Interests
Where does the funder fund? And where do the funder give most of its funding?
Money is No Object
If the funder is interesting and open to your proposal, the annual giving total doesn't matter. Small and large funders are all welcome. Small family foundations are a specialty area for us
Only Reasonably Accessible Funders
No funders that only do scholarships or are only giving to one or two recipients per year
Early Warning Indicators - Four Early Warning Signs
Is the funder geographically limited? Is the funder exclusively interested in only one field of interest? Is the funder awarding less than $500,000 per year? Does the funder accept unsolicited proposals? if not, are there ways to communicate in a simpler way with the funder?
Historical and Expressed Funding Interest
Does the funder award grants to organizations not on its published list of expressed interests? If so, would it be reasonable to expect they might look at my organization.
Easy to Read Historical Giving Patterns
Is the funder's giving going up or down or all over the place? No need to examine every 990PF, it's all here in one graph.
