Foundations that Provide Support for Human Services: A Selected List.
Smith, Bertha, Comp.
Lists of foundations can aid the user in securing funding sources for projects in the areas of health, education, community development and/or social services. The user is cautioned that grantsmanship is a competitive process; grants application procedures vary from one foundation to another. In the absence of any specific guidelines, important items to include in a proposal are: statement of need and problem; identification of target population to be served or benefited in any way; objectives; plan of implementation, with timetable for completion of each phase of a project; proposed budget; available and proposed staff; and an evaluation plan. It is important to indicate other sources of support plans for continuation of a project once foundation funds are expended, and a proven record of accountability is always good supportive information. Approximately 180 foundations are listed from 25 different states. Each listing includes the foundation's name, address, and a brief summary of its purpose or support preferences. Although the list was prepared for persons working with Native American groups, the foundations named are not exclusively for Native Americans. Lists of Indian Health Service regional and area office contacts are included to facilitate acquisition of additional information or assistance. (RTS)
