The intersection between the world of philanthropy and the federal funding stream is changing dramatically. President Trump has proposed substantial changes in federal funding, cutting deeply into many programs.
In Trump’s budget request for Fiscal Year 2018, which begins on Oct. 1, many of the federal funding programs that grant seekers depends on, would see substantial reductions or could be eliminated altogether. Programs, like the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, have a distinguished funding track record, and help a great many people and distribute lots of money in grants.
Although Congress has yet to embrace those deep reductions, it has created considerable uncertainty within the grant seeking community. Rather than handwringing, you should consider diversification. Now is the perfect time to expand your horizons, broaden your reach and look more thoroughly at alternate funding sources—the private funders.
Keep in mind that there are roughly more than 1.5 million nonprofit organizations registered in the U.S. These include 1.5 million public charities, 100,796 private foundations and 370,180 other types of nonprofit organizations.
Everyone needs to keep in mind that private grant-making organizations dispense about $335 billion per year. The impact of these organizations is enormous. The United Way has 1,200 offices located in every state and virtually every congressional district and works with 37,300 partner agencies across the country.
