GrantStation Status Announcement


We understand the challenges being faced by nonprofits, educational organizations, and individuals across the globe.

Plus, as a longstanding cloud company, we are fully resourced to serve our Members who may be focusing on grantseeking instead of event fundraising due to the growing needs in communities in the U.S. and abroad. As always, our staff is working diligently to provide you with high quality and accurate information about grantmakers across the globe.

Webinar Spotlight

Writing Capacity Building Grants

Capacity building grants are unique. While many best practices in writing operational or program grant requests apply to developing capacity building grant requests, there are some critical differences that need to be addressed to create the strongest application possible.

During the 90-minute webinar, Alice Ruhnke will define and discuss the fundamentals of capacity building grant requests, highlight the key components that differ from "regular" grants, and outline ways to identify funders who provide capacity building grants.

Tracks to Success

Finding Positives in the Negative During COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has in a short span of time sent our world into flux. Nobody knows what its final shape will be, but with social contact limited, events have been cancelled, spending patterns have changed, and people’s personal priorities have radically shifted. No sector of society is immune, certainly not the nonprofit sector. Charitable organizations have lost fundraiser revenue, seen volunteer networks disrupted, and been forced to cut back or shutter programs. Most of the organizations still operating have dispersed their paid staff to work from home.
