Grantseeker Resources

We receive requests for funding nonprofit organizations, but GWP does not make grants or provide any financial assistance to other nonprofits. We provide the resources below to help grantseekers in their search and we encourage you to reach out to your funder for specific application details. When approaching any funder, the best recomendation is to visit the funder's website for its most current processes, funding priorities and application deadlines. 



Many funders have online portals where they accept applications for grants and only a handful of funders accept the actual Common Grant Application Form. This form can be used as a template to help grantseekers collect the necessary information needed to apply for a grant online.

  As a service to both our members and the nonprofit community, GWP provides a calendar containing grant deadlines from our member foundations. The calendar is updated annually, but because foundation deadlines change often, please confirm the deadline with the funder or their website before applying.
