Sometimes, you just want a quick list of ways to make grant seeking easier.

 

Okay.

 

Here you are, five ways to make your grant search easier.

 

  1. Get on the grants list of your local government. Most departments have grants lists that they send to people who subscribe. Contact your government and get on those lists
  2. Get on the grants list of the federal government, especially if you already have your DUNS number, SAM.gov, and Grants.gov
  3. Set Google alerts for grants that you'd like to have be sent to you. There are great operators that can help make your search even easier. Remember, about 90% of foundations don't have websites, so you'll still be missing out on opportunities if you rely exclusively on Google
  4. Get to know your local community foundation. Many have free grants list information or funder information that can help you.
  5. Check out your local library, many of them have access to resources that can help you with finding a grant that meets your needs. Some librarians will even do searches for you, if you tell them what you're looking for.

 

These are high-level tips to make your search easier. We go into more details in our grants prep classes and on our email list. Make sure you join today!
