Foundations and other Grantmakers can be excellent prospects for funding the work of your organization. With more than 200,000 foundations in the U.S. and 11,000 in Texas, where do you begin to find the ones whose purposes align with your organization’s mission? How do you approach them?

  • How do I determine which grants to pursue? Discover ways to research and evaluate prospective funding opportunities.
  • How do I connect with decision-makers? Learn how to approach funders and what to say when you do.
