Foundation Support Resources
Welcome to the Foundation Support library. Our resources in this area are designed to help you secure grants from private foundations (local, regional, or national) or from government agencies. Please note: if you are looking to raise money from small family foundations or donor-advised funds at community foundations, you may find Major Giving resources more helpful (see our Individual Giving library).
