As You Think About Finding Funding and About Your Search Strategy
Reminders and top sources when looking for funding:
Advertised Funding Opportunities
Pivotis atool intended to help expand searching and save time. It allows searching of advertised funding opportunities from various kinds of sponsors and includes an alert option. That is, you can ask to receive notifications about new funding opportunities that match your search or interests.
Essential agency. If you do not want to miss any posts from a particular agency, be sure and follow announcements from that agency.
Organizations. Also, especially if you are thinking of travel, scholarships, or smaller awards, remember membership organizations.
Notifications. Sign up for notifications when you can.
Funding Opportunities Through Foundations
Foundations and the Right Match. Establishment of a foundation implies an intention to support certain causes or types of work. We don't expect the foundation to advertise its funding opportunities; instead those requiring support look to find the right foundation.
