Grant seeking is not for the faint-hearted. That is why it’s best to invest some time in trying to diversify your private funding stream. – Terry Fletcher

Competition for funding is fierce and further fuelled by funders having differing priorities. For example, regional funders might consider any project within their geographic region; others may have more specific priorities, such as federal agencies which set out precise mandates that must be met before funding can be received. There are roughly 70,000 private grant-making organizations that dispense about $450 billion per year*. These organizations have a huge impact on funding. Many organizations are dedicated to a single cause, while others may support multiple causes.
In today’s unpredictable world, federal and private organizations are increasingly aware of the importance of a strong educational experience for young people through issues such as Bullying and Cyber-bullying. Numerous resources have been allocated to lessen the occurrences of bullying. Organizations are increasingly funding bullying prevention and reduction programs as media attention on research into the impacts of bullying on students and campus communities become widespread. Federal and private funders are at the forefront of the effort to prevent and reduce bullying. These funders are always on the lookout for quality programs, however, the number of programs vying for attention make funding difficult to obtain for hopefuls.
Another funding opportunity on the rise today is funding for capital projects and federal and private organizations are on the lookout for establishments engaged in such projects. Federal agencies and private organizations are enthusiastic in providing capital funding for areas pertaining to manufacturing innovations, creative placemaking, the homeless, and minority/higher education achievement.
