The Spring 2015 State of Grantseeking™ Report

As a part of the grantseeking community, you know how important it is to stay on top of trends. The State of Grantseeking reports, produced twice a year, spotlight recent developments in funding so that organizations can be more strategic in their grantseeking. These free survey results reflect the grantseeking experiences of over 1,800 respondents.

The reports look at sources of grant funding in several ways: any funder, the largest source of total funding, and the funder of the largest individual award. In addition, the median value of the largest individual award, in total and by various subcategories, is provided as a benchmark figure throughout the report.

GrantStation, the Grant Professionals Association, and PhilanTech (an Altum company) are pleased to assist you in your good work by sharing this information with you.
