Students will compile a list of 10 funding sources (not specific grants, but the grant makers themselves) which will include as much information as possible from the following list: name of funder, location, website, areas of focus/key funding priorities, geographic area of focus, total endowment, total giving in the previous year in dollars, number of awards granted in previous year, and a point of contact if one is provided. It is possible that some of the information asked for will not be readily available. Your list will likely include a mix of federal, state, or local governmental entities, community, private or family foundations, or corporate foundations.
A worksheet/template for this assignment has been provided. You just fill in the blank for 10 different funders.
