    Grant Overview

    Grant Writing Tips


    Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects from films, games and music to art, design, and technology! Kickstarter is a platform and a resource; you have complete control over and responsibility for your projects. Anyone can launch a project on Kickstarter as long as it meets the guidelines. You set the funding goal and deadline; if people like your project they can pledge money to help make it happen!

    Give Corps

    Give Corps is an online community where you can discover new opportunities to further your vision. You can find causes that inspire you, volunteer with them, donate to them, and spread the word to others. You can also start your own cause or foundation! This funding program also provides Corps Rewards which are discounts/coupons you can use with their local merchant partners.


    CrowdRise is an online fundraising website that is a unique blend of crowd funding, social networking, contests and more. First, set a goal, and personalize your fundraising page and then, start your campaign! Send your link via email, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Myspace, and then just keep asking and asking! The whole point is to make it fun so that people want to help you raise money for your good cause. Add incentives, like every time someone donates $100 dye your hair green or something fun like that!


    Rally is an online fundraising tool used to build social awareness on a larger scale with no deadlines. Rally is used for everything from political campaigns to non-profit organizations to people wanting to cover their medical expenses or tuition. Simply create a page, upload a photo or video, and grow your supporters using the social sharing features built into your personal website already connecting your message to twitter/Facebook, etc.
