Module 7: Potential Funding Sources
Thousands of U.S. corporations have a long history of philanthropy. In fact, many have established their own foundations to facilitate their charitable efforts. Some corporations also have programs that match employee contributions, offer in-kind gifts, or provide volunteers for projects. Local WVC projects may be eligible to receive support from corporate conservation, environmental, or community programs.
The National Directory of Corporate Giving (The Foundation Center) describes the charitable activities of 2,586 major U.S. corporate foundations and 1,468 direct-giving programs. Entries include the following information: the company's name, address, affiliates, subsidiaries (if any), amount and range of grants, and types of non-cash support such as staff time and products.
Fundsnet Online Services (http://www.fundsnetservices.com) provides an online search database for corporate funding and lists both corporate and private foundation programs with links to their respective websites.
