On “Free Money”

I found a great post today about “free grant money,”  written by a fellow Grant Resource Center person in Ohio.  Please read it!   I cannot tell you how often I am forced to break the “free grant money” myths, and how frustrating it is when people don’t believe me, or think that surely I must be hiding something.


Tools for Individual Grantseekers

Last week, I held my first-ever round of Foundation Grants to Individuals classes.  To create this class, I actually combined two separate classes:  Finding Foundation Support for Your Education and Grantseeking in the Arts.  I combined the classes because both use the same database for research, the Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, but I’m still not sure if it was the right thing to do.  Many of my participant feedback forms said that attendees needed more information on the grantseeking process as a whole, not just on the research-for-funders aspect.  (Yes, I really read and rely on that feedback!)

Here, I present individual grantseekers with some more tools and resources to aid in their grantseeking.  Please let me know in the comments if you found anything helpful here!
