Finding Funders

Its only 9:15 am and I have already fielded two questions this morning on SANE/SART funding, so I am going to take that as a sign from the blogging gods and get a post up on finding funders.

It must seem like, at times, I'm a paid spokesperson for a couple different sites (oh, how I wish!), but the reality is I simply have a few, well-vetted tools in my arsenal to which I return over and over again for quality information. The Foundation Center is one of those. Happily, they have an on-line course (offered monthly) on finding funders, that might be useful to those of you trying to identify applicable funding sources, but unsure where to go after your initial Google search returns thousands of sites of indeterminate relevance. The next dates for the course are:

  • October 14th, 1-2pm ET
  • November 5th, 2-3pm ET
  • December 1st, 2-3pm ET

If none of those dates work for you, or you simply need the info sooner rather than later, you can also view a recording online.
