Foundation Support Resources
Welcome to the Foundation Support library. Our resources in this area are designed to help you secure grants from private foundations (local, regional, or national) or from government agencies. Please note: if you are looking to raise money from small family foundations or donor-advised funds at community foundations, you may find Major Giving resources more helpful (see our Individual Giving library).
New to Public Media?
In addition to the grantseeking resources you'll find in the menu options at left, we recommend the following general resources to help "ground" you in your new position:
Need one-on-one help?
If your station needs staff coaching in grant writing or grant research, would like a professional review of your proposal prior to submission, or is interested in contracting with a grant writer, go to the Grant Center information page.
The Grant Center
The Grant Center is public media's premier source for grant seekers. A collaboration between Greater Public and the Association of Public Television Stations (APTS), the Grant Center is a one-stop shop for funding opportunities tailored specifically for public broadcasting stations and national organizations. It also offers custom prospect research, funding updates, and resources to help you make your case. The Grant Center is funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
