Establishing a website is a very effective way to get your information out to potential grantseekers and the public. Some funders post their mission and guidelines on the web, as well as application forms that grantseekers can download. Websites are also good places to feature a list of grants from the past year or two (with grant purpose and amounts), and the foundation’s annual tax reporting form (your 990 or 990-PF).
If you do not have a website, the Foundation Center creates and hosts free websites for grantmakers through their Foundations Folders program. Eligible grantmakers receive a custom website that can include program descriptions, application guidelines, grants lists, and other materials you specify.
