GrantStation Member Benefits
The partnership with GrantStation allows you to do the following:
- Search through their listings of active grantmakers.
- Write winning proposals with their tutorials.
- Learn to create your grants strategy with your tools.
- Read through the archives of the GrantStation Insider newsletter, which you can receive in your email each week.
GrantStation access includes a searchable database for thousands of private and government grantmakers throughout the U.S., Canada, and internationally.
You can do all of your Federal (US government) or National (Canadian government) grants research as well as State (US) grant opportunities and Provinces (Canadian) grant opportunities. Your search will only return those grantmakers who are actively engaged, accepting unsolicited grant requests in the coming year, and making awards to a variety of organizations - providing you with a list of potential funders who accept requests.
GrantStation's search functionality allows you to filter your criteria by service population, support type, funder type, areas of interest, and more, to aid in the search for grantmakers eager to support your nonprofit. Thoughtfully choose your desired search criteria after reviewing the Search Terms glossary and their list of helpful search tips. Save your search criteria so you can run the search at a later date. This may give you new results as the database is regularly updated.
GrantStation has three private funder databases.
- U.S. Charitable
- Canadian Charitable
- International database
The databases include a range of funders that accept inquiries and proposals. This includes private, corporate, and community foundations; corporate giving programs; faith-based funders; association grant programs; and more.
Keeping funder profiles up to date is a key goal for GrantStation. That is why funder profiles are revised throughout the year to accurately reflect any updates in funding priorities or application procedures to provide you with the most current information available.
Funder profiles include the following:
- Primary contact information.
- Current funding priorities, geographic scope, grant guidelines, and application deadlines.
- Geographic scope includes national, state, county, or city levels.
- Hyperlinks to funders' emails and websites.
- Notes that provide "insider" information on selected funders.
GrantStation provides several step-by-step tutorials to help guide you when writing and submitting grant requests. The tutorials contain thought-provoking ideas, resources, and processes to make you feel confident as you begin writing grant requests. A variety of award-winning grant proposals are available when you become a member, which may be helpful when writing your own proposals
