The State of Grantseeking Report
Between August 7 and September 7, 2010, PhilanTech and GrantStation conducted a survey to take a snapshot of the state of grantseeking. The 839 respondents ranged from volunteer-run grassroots organizations to large national nonprofits.While the economy may be showing some signs of recovery, the state of grantseeking in the U.S. remains challenging:
- 42% of survey respondents said that in comparison with the first six months of 2009 the grants awarded were smaller (and many of the grants were under $10,000);
- Small nonprofits seem particularly challenged; 26% of nonprofits with budgets under $50,000 had not submitted a grant request in 2010, while 95% of respondents with budgets over $250,000 had;
- The good news is that the majority of organizations that submitted requests had received at least one grant.
