Approaching Foundations Thoughtfully.
Thompson, David M.
The potential of foundation support for educational grants is addressed in terms of expectancy based on past performance, types of foundations, and the foundation field (e.g., "general welfare"). Details are given briefly about community foundations, family foundations, business foundations, and foundation research. Procedures are outlined for dealing with foundations. It is emphasized that the survival of an organization cannot be dependent solely upon foundation support. Suggestions are offered for writing a proposal that clarifies what is proposed, why it is important, how much it will cost, etc. The actual drafting of a proposal for submission to a foundation should be one of the last phases of a continuing process of internal and external research, planning, cultivation and related advancement efforts.
