This 2nd edition of one of our best-selling grant directories is packed with scores of newly-researched public and private grants for schools, local education agencies, school districts, and nonprofits with programs serving school-age children.
Here are just a few ways this guide is like none other:
We ferret out federal and foundation education funding opportunities in areas where you might not expect to find them -- such as healthcare and the environment. We show you educational grant opportunities buried deep within funding programs that others generally don't know about, giving you a valuable edge.
Unlike most other grant resources, we talk with federal and foundation officials to bring you key insights on their funding priorities -- advice that can make all the difference in your grantseeking. Our research is done by our staff of experienced grant researchers, who provide grant updates for our online, continually updated news services -- Children & Youth Funding Report, Federal & Foundation Assistance Monitor, and Private Grants Alert.
And, best of all, if you need more information on a grant, just call our staff and they'll be happy to assist you. That's a service others rarely offer -- and it's free for subscribers and directory purchasers only.
Here are just a few areas in which you'll find coverage:
* Counseling/mental health
* Environmental education/gardening
* Professional Development
* Special Ed
* Health--substance abuse, nutrition/obesity
* Safety … and much more
You'll find invaluable information not available from Grants.gov or other directories, with key details that could give you a significant edge in applying.
We look at thousands of private funders for you, but focus on those with broader eligibility criteria and generally higher funding levels -- so you don't waste time looking at funders with more restrictive guidelines and fairly small giving levels.
Plus, we've included lots of fresh, practical advice that can make a key difference in your efforts….advice that comes directly from the funding officials we talk to on a regular basis.
For example, you'll learn how to develop more effective public/private partnerships….what you need to know about including "social networking" in your fundraising…how to avoid simple mistakes that can negate all your hard work...how to most effectively find funders that best meet your needs…what you can learn from reviewing winning grant applications…the importance of partnering and collaborating with others.
You'll find advice from veteran grant seminar leader George Zocklein, an expert who’s taught nearly 100,000 grantseekers over two decades. You’ll get advice from Federal Assistance Monitor Senior Editor and grants consultant Ray Sweeny on what you should know about this year’s federal grant competitions … and so much more.
