Directories are great tools for finding new funding sources. As of late 2017, nonprofits, school districts, and other grant seekers in the United States of America can find state and local foundation directories for 32 of the 50 states. The states that do not have current or recently published state-specific, statewide directories of grant makers are: Arkansas (AR), California (CA), Delaware (DE), Florida (FL), Georgia (GA), Hawaii (HI), Mississippi (MS), Missouri (MO), Nevada (NV), New Jersey (NJ), New York (NY), North Carolina (NC), North Dakota (ND), Rhode Island (RI), South Dakota (SD), Utah (UT), Texas (TX), and West Virginia (WV). Washington, DC (DC) also has none.

 

State Grant Directories 2017

 

Available directories vary greatly in their quality, coverage, and content. Some are available in multiple formats; most, in one only. Since 2012, the number of state-specific directories has fallen by about 25%. In late 2017, out of 55 identified directories, five are PDF files, 10 are compact disks (CDs), 17 are print compilations, and 22 are online databases.

 

This post covers the Northwestern States of Alaska (AK), Idaho (ID), Montana (MT), Oregon (OR), Washington (WA), and Wyoming (WY). Later posts in the series for 2017 will cover other regions in the United States of America.
