Identifying Grantors and Obtaining Application Information

During your research you will likely identify several potential funding sources based on broad category or keyword searches. The next step is to weed out those funding sources that will require you to significantly change your project or to "stretch" its objectives to fit into the narrow guidelines of the grantor. It is far more efficient, and in the end more beneficial to send appropriate requests to fewer organizations than to send a shower of appeals in the hopes that one may land in the right place.
The first step in the weeding out process is to request any informational materials, such as annual reports or lists of previous grants awarded that may be available from each of the grantors. If you are approaching a private foundation, you may also want to request a copy of their IRS form 990-PF, which provides basic financial data, a complete list of grants, the names of the foundation's trustees and officers, and other information on the foundation.
