I have worked on a couple of grants in my day, but I have not had experience actually searching for them. So, I thought I would do a little homework. I’ve done some searching and have posted the best finds below. Let me know if you’ve used these and/or if you found them helpful!
- www.donorsforumsfl.org : The Donors Forum of South Florida actually exists to support local funders. However, they do have a section on their website for organizations seeking funding. For an annual fee ($150), you will be able to access a directory of South Florida funders, including profiles for each. The profiles list the donors giving history, interests, contact info and more.
- www.miamifoundation.org : While they are currently in the review process and not accepting applications, The Miami Foundation also has a section for grant seekers. Keep checking for updates and opportunities.
- www.miamidade.gov/grants : Miami-Dade’s Office of Grants Coordination has a free searchable database. They also include a link to the power point presentation for their Community Based Organization Grant Writing Workshop. The presentation includes 10 useful tips for grant writing.
