Virginia Grant Resources

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

If you want to find an excellent supply of gems, look no further than the Morefield Gem Mine in Virginia. Their website invites everyone to visit and find something of interest and/or beauty to simply take home. Want to find lots of valuable funding sources to take home to your nonprofit organization? You’ve found the perfect location for that right here!

Take government funding for instance: Virginia is geographically snuggled up to Washington DC, so there are lots of state and federal sources to check out on our web page below. Looking for grants and volunteers from your local United Way chapter? How about grant dollars from community foundations located right around the block? Let’s not forget about public foundations and successful corporations based in Virginia. There’s a section of valuable information here on our website for every one of these funder categories for you to “take home” to your nonprofit organization!

Yep, we make that part easy. Okay, here’s the challenge: Not all funders respond to all requests for grants, because not everyone fits into their interest areas or qualifications. To learn how to figure out who to approach and how, we invite you to participate in our Grantsmanship Training Program. It’s a fast-paced and inspiring 5-day workshop, packed with the skills-training and guidance you need to find a great match, and to write grant proposals that stand high above the competition. Applying for grants is a challenging task, and high-caliber training often makes the difference.

Here are three more steps for preparing outstanding proposals!
