International nonprofits often have a tougher time than domestic, U.S.-based organizations when it comes to finding grant opportunities. And that’s not because there aren’t plenty out there; you just have to know where to look.
We always suggest starting with the Foundation Directory Online database. This is the most comprehensive grant prospect database out there.
That being said, there are tons of international funders who are not listed in the FDO, either because they aren’t based in the U.S. or because they just aren’t listed — some foundations do fall through the cracks.
Here are a few additional resources to help you find grants for your international nonprofit:
There are lots of sites out there that have culled links to various foundations, but the ones above are our favorites. We also suggest doing a Google search for specific keywords relevant to your project or organization. You may also search for grants for your country or region of the world.
