Finding funding sources is often one of the most time-consuming aspects of seeking competitively awarded grants. This post presents links to sources of Federal grants from selected Federal grant-making agencies and offices. Earlier posts each surveyed several agencies and offices. This final post will survey others.

 

Links were live at the time of research; if one proves inactive — and it does not automatically redirect users to a live link — simply reduce the link back to its domain name (e.g., usda.gov) and review that website for a new link.

Finding funding to sustain new projects and initiatives over the long-term is a critical aspect of seeking and winning competitive grants. This post presents books about fundraising that were published in 2011. Earlier posts presented similar books published in 2012 or 2013 or forthcoming in 2013.

 

Research Method:

Most of the listed books represent titles found on Amazon using the site’s ‘publication date’ sorting feature and the search term ‘fundraising.’ The searches yielded 37 titles for 2011. Using other sources and search terms may lead to different lists.

 

Scope of Coverage:

The list is not intended to be exhaustive, but it is subject to correction and revision. It does not list books from before or after 2011; such books are the topics of other posts. Inclusion of a book here is not an endorsement nor does it necessarily mean I have read it. The list strives to include books that contribute to understanding practices in fundraising — and to related topics, including grant writing — and to minimize its inclusion of other kinds of books.
