Benefits for Organizations

You can use GrantStation to:

  • Find and contact grantmakers who are most likely to fund your project or program
  • Learn the best practices for writing grant proposals

Major Capabilities

  • U.S. Charitable Giving: Members get connected to the top national, regional, and local giving programs. They can perform powerful, targeted searches on thousands of private grantmakers, including foundations, corporate giving programs, religious funders, and associations with grantmaking programs.
  • Federal Grants and Loans: The federal grants and loans section offers detailed program, contact, and application information on an extensive listing of federal grant opportunities. This information is updated twice weekly. It is produced exclusively for members and sorted by deadline date.
  • State Grants and Loans: GrantStation links to each grantmaking department in every state, making state funding research easier.
  • International Charitable Giving: Identify grantmakers based in other countries that support organizations throughout the world.
  • Write and Learn: Step-by-step tutorials on building grant requests, writing letters of inquiry, and managing grant awards.
  • GrantStation Insider: GrantStation's weekly bulletin of grantseeking opportunities is delivered right to members' desktops each week. The Insider provides the latest information on upcoming national and regional funding opportunities. The Insider also includes a link to the Talk2020 podcasts, which highlight lesser-known funding sources.

Renewals

You can request and apply a one-year membership to renew a current membership, but you may not apply multiple requests to a single membership. For example, you can request up to 20 one-year memberships for 20 different users but you cannot request 20 one-year memberships for one person for use over 20 years.

Email Confirmation

Before requesting a membership, make sure your organization's email address is up-to-date in your TechSoup member profile. Within 10 business days after your request has been approved, GrantStation will send the login information to this email address. If you prefer the membership to be in the name of someone else in your organization, you will be prompted to complete GrantStation's Contact Update Form.
