Finding Grants

Money

This site will help you find grants that you can apply for. Once you've found a grant, visit Writing Grants for help in applying for one.

Tips

  • Since many companies are looking for good community relations, it is a good idea to ask local businesses first. For example, last year there was a small store in West Valley City that donated hundreds of dollars in merchandise to Granger Elementary, which were used as incentives for good attendance and grades.
  • To find some local businesses with established foundations, try searching for the business name, followed by 'foundation', and it will help you find a more direct route.
  • Since it is less expensive for a company to give you merchandise than to give you money, try to find local technology stores that could help you.
