Eckstein, Richard M., Ed.
Searching for sources of grant support can be complex because the field covers a wide territory. This directory contains profiles of 650 foundations that award educational grants to nonprofit organizations. Three articles are designed to sharpen fund-raising skills. The first article provides an overview of history of education funding and the kinds of education applicants, and offers advice to educators about competing in a complicated funding environment. The second article describes grant-seeking strategies on the Internet. The third article offers 10 tips for writing more competitive grant proposals. The 650 foundation profiles are arranged by state. Appendices provide contact information for The Foundation Center and The Grantsmanship Center. An alphabetical index and a subject index are also included. The subject index offers the following categories: adult education, cultural education, elementary education, health education, higher education, libraries, literacy, medical education, minorities, religious education, scholarships, science/mathematics, secondary education, and special education.
