All About the New

New Look for!

Welcome to the new! We still have the same great content and the same high-quality listings of grantmakers. However, we have a more advanced platform so that we can start delivering new tools and functionality for our valued Members.

You can watch a video tour of GrantStation highlighting what's new.

New Look
Our new look includes a slide show, front and center on our homepage, which will highlight specific items of interest for you each week.

New Navigation
You’ll find links to our key features in the upper right, including link for your Login.

  • You’ll find access to our databases under Find Grantmakers.

  • Tools like Grants2020 and the Grantseeking Calendar process are under Build Strategy.

  • Check out Write Proposals for the tutorials on how to complete a grant request.

  • Under Public Resources you’ll find:

    • the GrantStation Insider newsletter (both domestic and international); and,

    • links to TrendTrack, PathFinder, and Online Education.

New Search Interface for the U.S. Charitable Giving Database

We have made some changes to help you with your research:

  • Your searches will be more responsive so that you get results just seconds after you click the criteria.

  • You will also be able to refine your search more easily since the results of each search combination will be displayed on the same page.

  • The results display the Geographic Focus where each grantmaker gives, so that you can prioritize your research.

We have added new search criteria:

  • We have fine-tuned our criteria in the Areas of Interest, Target Populations, and Types of Support, and have added new ones such as Charter Schools and Microfinance.

  • You can now filter by Type of Grantmaker, such as corporate giving programs and religious grantmakers.

  • You can look for global grantmakers giving to U.S. organizations.

  • You can find grantmakers by the state where they are located, not just by the states that are their giving focus.

What’s Coming in the Future
We will introduce new features throughout the year so that you can take your time learning how to use each one. Here are some of the resources we will roll out within the next six months:

  • Ability to save searches and reports

  • Your own personal dashboard with your saved results

  • Enhanced search interface for our Canadian Charitable Giving Database

  • New interactive tools for building funding strategies

Let us know what you think about what you see! All of our changes are driven by our conversations with our Members so we look forward to hearing your feedback.
