State of Grantseeking
The Spring 2018 State of Grantseeking Reports are used by thousands of NPOs to assist them in establishing benchmarks and guiding their grantseeking strategies.
You are welcome to share these reports with your staff, board, and world. The reports by Annual Budget or by Mission Focus may be of most value at an individual NPO-level, as these reports are key to helping organizations set realistic grantseeking goals.
GrantStation can help you succeed in your professional development. We offer a variety of learning resources to meet your needs, including powerful and timely in depth webinars, free short-form webinars, a library of top quality resources, and a blog focusing on current trends in philanthropy.

How one community foundation helped turn tragedy into triumph
by Francis Hare
How many communities can mark a watershed event as a literal turning point? For Walker County, a predominantly rural collective of 14 towns in northwest Alabama, that event was the same cluster of tornadoes that devastated nearby Tuscaloosa on April 27, 2011.
In the aftermath, remembers Paul Kennedy, President of the Walker Area Community Foundation, "People were looking for leadership. We already had the resources, and now we’d been handed the political capital to address a long-growing sense in the area that we could do better than the status quo."
