Foundation grants can be a great way to obtain funding. If you do not have enough experience
with writing successful grant proposals I strongly urge you to enlist a consultant from:
www.idealist.org . Near the top of their home page they list a link to a Directory of
Consultants. Please click onto this link where you can enlist the help of a person to write a letter
of inquiry after which you may be invited to submit a grant proposal. The consultant should
know which foundations will most likely provide the funding you seek. They may charge a
5-10 % fee when a proposal is successful which, I believe, could be included in a proposal. No
fee should be collected for unsuccessful proposals. You should probably send each potential
funding source a letter of inquiry first. They would then invite you to submit a full proposal.
You can find the requirements for a letter of inquiry/proposal on most websites for foundations.

York 10003; Tel: 212-843-3973; Fax: 212-564-3377.
The Grantsmanship Center at: www.tgci.com lists a link to funding from foundation and
corporate sources for international programs.
http://fdncenter.org/grantmaker is the website for The Foundation Center where you should
be able to find out the cost of their catalog entitled, “Grants for International and Foreign
Programs”. When I obtained my copy in 1987 it only cost $30. I have heard that it now costs
about $125. However, I would check it out to be sure of the cost. If you can afford it this
catalog will be very helpful with locating foundations that can assist your work. The
Foundation Center also has a short course on grantwriting if you are interested on their website.
E-mail: email@example.com . Mailing address: The Foundation Center; 79 Fifth Av; New

They also have information on this website on how to contact them with an intial contact letter
and their grant guidelines.
The Public Welfare Foundation at: www.publicwelfare.org may also be hepful under several
of their categories. The Public Welfare Foundation suggests three ways that you can deal with

organizations. Their requirements for a letter of inquiry/grant proposal are also on the website.
