New Foundation Grant Opportunities

We continue to add new grant opportunities to The NonProfit Times Grant Page. Specifically, we have added three new categories (Education, Community Building, and Social Entrepreneurship) and uploaded four new grants. While the majority of our first batch of listings were mainly from government organizations such as the Food and Drug Administration, our latest additions are from foundations.

Below is one of the four new grant opportunities we posted on our site:

Type of Grant: Education
Grant Name: Community Action Grants Program
Agency(s): AAUW
Closing Date for Applications: Jan. 15, 2013


The AAUW Community Action Grants Program provides funds to AAUW state organizations as well as local community-based nonprofits for innovative programs or non-degree research projects that promote education and equity for women and girls.

Eligible Organizations:

Eligible nonprofits must be based in the United States and projects must have a direct public impact on the issue of education equality for women and girls. In addition, they must be non-partisan and take place within the U.S. or its territories. Preference will be given to projects focused on K-12 and community college girls’ and women’s achievements in science, technology, engineering or math.

There are two types of grants available: One-year ($2,000 to $7,000 in funds) or two-year grants ($5,000 to $10,000 in funds). The former provides seed money for new projects while the latter provides start-up funds for longer-term projects. You can apply for these opportunities at http://www.actionvolunteering.com/apply_online.htm

You can see the other opportunities we have listed by visiting our Grants Page.
