- Shared a newsletter highlighting a discount on TechSoup for Grant Station
Which is owned by Imagine Canada, which essentially the overarching union of Canadian Charities.
Their database is almost exclusively Canadian granters.
But is VERY expensive.
We suggest going through your local libraries to see if they have it!
Or let me know some search criteria and I’ll take a look.
I believe that Grant Station is American owned, and has a lot of US Foundations.
The problem many of you will face is that 1) You are not a charity, this will rule out nearly all of the foundations, very rarely do foundations donate to non-profits not exclusively charities.
I’ve not taken a look at Grant Station but I was told reliably that Grant Connect has many more Canadian.
The other thing to consider is that these databases often also list corporate giving. For example, RBC has corporate giving but restricts it to Charities (last I checked).
ps! On the Members Only site, I try to keep an excel sheet with grants that you ‘are’ eligible for as up to date as possible.
After a conversation with Ottawa volunteers and staff we were informed that you can access grant connect via the Ottawa Library online sign in form.
