to apply for a grant
As of December 2011, Cottonwood Foundation is in the process of ceasing its operations and does not plan to award grants in future years. Over the past 20 years since Cottonwood Foundation was started in January 1992, the foundation has awarded 624 grants totaling $643,062 supporting projects in over 50 countries.
Regarding other possible sources of funding for your organization, you may find it helpful to consider the resources listed below:
Grants for Organizations Outside of the United States
* The Terra Viva Grants Directory at www.terravivagrants.org is a useful web site which contains information about many international funders and focuses on grants for agriculture, energy, environment, and natural resources in the world's developing countries.
* Another helpful resource for researching international funders is the map of US grants provided internationally over the past several years which can be accessed at the Foundation Center's web site at http://fconline.foundationcenter.org/maps/. To use the map, click on a country to see a list of recipients in that country. Then click on a recipient to see a list of funders.
* Fundsnet Services maintains a comprehensive listing of international grantmakers.
* Another web site related to researching international grantmaking is that of Grantmakers Without Borders: http://gwob.net/advicegs/index.htm.
For organizations located in the United States, you may find it helpful to visit a nearby Foundation Center Cooperating Collection. These collections are located in certain public and university libraries throughout the country, and contain useful resources related to foundations and fundraising. A listing of these collections can be found at http://www.foundationcenter.org/collections. Librarians associated with these collections can sometimes provide useful advice about fundraising as well.
Thank you for your interest in Cottonwood Foundation.
