What is GrantSpace?

GrantSpace is a service of the Foundation Center that offers information and resources designed to meet the needs of nonprofits worldwide, specifically around the topics of fundraising and nonprofit management. GrantSpace is the place to explore in-depth content, engage with a community of peers and experts, and energize your fundraising efforts. The best thing is that most of this information is free and easy to use!

What will be in this blog?

At least twice a week, we will write about how you can be a better grantseeker. You are busy working your charitable mission, and we want to lighten your load by giving you quick and easy access to resources that will help you work smarter, be a more viable grant applicant, and, ultimately, be more sustainable.

Here's a glance at some of the items you'll see in this blog:

  • Interesting Q&As from our Ask Us team. Because for every question asked, a lot of other people are wondering the same thing.
  • Eye on FDO. Many of you are familiar with Foundation Directory Online (FDO) and have asked questions about the content in our searchable database of grantmakers. We'll write about interesting ways to search FDO and peek behind-the-scenes at how it all works.

We want to hear from you!

We love comments and appreciate the time you take to leave them. Comments are a great opportunity to learn from each other and to build a collective knowledge base for future dreamers and doers.

Just some basic rules: Be fair and respectful. Please don't ask our visitors for money, but you're always welcome to ask for advice on how to raise funds for your good work. Also, we reserve the right to remove comments that are harassing, inflammatory, solely promotional in nature, or irrelevant to the topic.

If you have questions that exceed the space limits of the comment box, click on the Ask Us link at the top of the screen and send us your questions. Our expert librarians will be happy to help you.

Is the virtual world not really your thing? Do you want to speak to a real person? No problem. We 'd love to meet you, too! Call or visit any of our regional offices or 400+ Funding Information Network partners.
