An Open Letter to Funding Sources

Dear Gantmakers, Foundations and Government Agencies that fund nonprofits,

GrantWatch wishes you, your family and your organization a Happy Thanksgiving! Before you wind down business for the holidays, though, remember that #GivingTuesday is right around the corner — the first Tuesday following Thanksgiving.

This is the perfect time to post a grant for community services and homeless assistance using our free, easy-to-use portal. GrantWatch lists grants from foundations, corporations and federal, local and state governments. You provide the basic information, and we’ll fill in the rest!

Nonprofits, small businesses and charitable individuals are gearing up to help local communities during this year’s #GivingTuesday holiday season. There are so many creative ideas and campaigns on UHelp that will help the less fortunate. The need for funding is immense!

As you know, many people are unable to spend the holidays with their families — and are without homes in which to spend Thanksgiving. Consider the people whose lives have been impacted by horrific weather events and acts of terrorism over the past few months as well as victims of domestic violence and families bereft from illness. There are so many reasons to give, and you do it best through your grants.

If your organization has a funding opportunity, a grant available or award that will better various communities and individuals during the upcoming winter months, list it on, where nonprofits, small businesses and organizations can easily access financial services to carry out their generous goals and philanthropic mission.

GrantWatch thanks you for your generosity and work for the greater good.

Wishing you and yours good health and happiness,
