Why Not Apply for These In-Kind Grants?

In-kind grants can be a great alternative for nonprofits looking for funding. Especially for new nonprofits, these types of grants can be a great way to get acquainted with the grant world and start building connections with grant funders.  An in-kind grant provides donations of goods, services, or time instead of cash.

When looking for funding, many nonprofits go straight for the grants with the largest monetary value. While these grants can certainly be rewarding for organizations in need of funding, they oftentimes can be more competitive and require a more complex grant proposal.

Many organizations don’t realize operational resources, expenditures, and programs could be funded with an in-kind grant. An in-kind grant (also known as a “grant-in-kind”), makes up roughly five percent of all grant funding available.

Today, GrantWatch is highlighting 10 in-kind grants that are currently accepting applications. These grants can make a big difference for your nonprofit. We hope this list finds you well and you are able to find a grant that works for your organization.
