A couple of interesting facts about grants from the GPA (click here for the full article):
Why are experienced and professional grant writers so important?
FACT: In 2010, nearly 980,000 public charities were registered with the IRS, a 42% increase over the decade. More than 366,000 of them reported $25,000 or more in gross receipts. All of these organizations are competing for public and private funding, including grants, to help them meet their missions.
FACT:”Key Facts on U.S. Foundations” by the Foundation Center states that $54.7 billion was donated to nonprofits by over 86,000 private, corporate and community foundations in 2013. This is an increase of more than 80% over the past decade.
We wish you all a very happy day, full of great ideas, fun partnerships, fulfilling work, and grants success!
