Experienced professionals and first-time grant writers both praise GrantStation's online tools. GrantStation guides you through the essential steps of evaluating your funding needs, determining your best grant strategy, building a grants calendar, researching eligible funders, and then writing your letters of intent (LOIs) and actual applications.
To be included in GrantStation's database, funders must accept unsolicited proposals, applications, or letters of inquiry (LOIs); they must accept requests from a wide range of organizations; and they must be the actual granting organization.
The database includes state and federal programs; independent, family, community, and corporate foundations; corporate giving programs; faith-based grantmakers; and others. Resources are also available for Canadian and international charitable grantseekers.
GrantStation's database of topic areas include a broad cross section of funding areas.
Our partnership with GrantStation means we have the best deal nonprofits can get — $99 for a full 12-month subscription. That's $600 less than standard retail, and $200 off our usual TechSoup price. This limited $99 offer is available for just a few days each year.
"GrantStation is much easier to search than other online tools. Their keyword search is awesome! I found almost 20 opportunities not yet identified by our organization as possible funders. ...Their customer service is wonderful — very responsive and helpful. Great tool!! Great team!!"— Theresa Silveira
"I recommended GrantStation to a new grant writer recently. ... I like the fact that you have weeded out foundations that don't accept applications. I also like the ability to look up federal grants — much easier than Grants.gov! Thanks for providing a great product that we can actually afford."— Jo McMahan
