=====Types of Grants, Funds & Support===== =====Types of Grants, Funds & Support=====
 +
 +**Foundation Grants** are grants that are given out by Foundations. These are private organizations that are funded either by donors or frequently by a bequeath by an individual person, a corporation, or a family.  The foundation will have a very specific vision and set of goals and will only consider grant applications which are closely allied with their objectives. You often will not find applications or invitations to apply on their websites. They prefer to learn about an organizations vision and goals and if they are inspired by them they may invite that organization -- usually a nonprofit --- to apply.
**In-Kind Contributions:**  Sometimes support is offered in ways other than financial. An organization or foundation may offer contributions of office equipment, computers, supplies, office space or special expertise instead of money. These are called In-Kind Contributions. Some of the best In-Kind Contributions can be received from large corporations that may offer software, hardware and equipment at no charge. **In-Kind Contributions:**  Sometimes support is offered in ways other than financial.

-**Matching Grants:**  These are funds offered to match funds raised from other donors. They are often powerful incentives to encourage people to donate to causes -- we all love to double our money! Remember that the matching grant may have stipulations e.g. matching only for donations to a new building or new project.+**Matching Grants:**  These are funds offered to match funds raised from other donors. They are often powerful incentives to encourage lots of people to donate to causes -- we all love to double our money! Remember that the matching grant may have stipulations e.g. matching only for donations to a new building or new project.
**Operating Support Grant:** This type of award is given to fund ongoing operational expenses such as existing staff and the expenses already in the budget. This differs significantly from other grants that often specify that they be used for items specifically not in an organization's current operating budget. If you're looking for help with operations costs, you may find business opportunities listed at the [[:domain_discuss:fbo.gov]] website. **Operating Support Grant:** This type of award is given to fund ongoing operational expenses such as existing staff and the expenses already in the budget.
