Do you have a plan for identifying grant opportunities to apply to, or for researching potential grant funders? A systematic approach to both will yield winning results. Researching potential grant funders is a critical step in the grant development process. Having a solid understanding of a potential grant funder's funding history, current priorities, and application and funding process are critical to winning a grant.

Grant funder research involves a great deal more than contact information and deadlines. It includes understanding funding trends, priority interests, types of support provided and geographic focus. In addition, understanding the type of grant maker you are applying to will heavily impact the application and funding process.
