How Often Are Grants Updated?

Our Research Team works hard to ensure that funder profiles are as up-to-date and accurate as possible by reviewing funders’ websites, annual reports, financial information, and IRS Form 990s and continuously connecting with funders in order to provide you with the most current information available.

During the calendar year, each profile is updated at least once, and those funders that have been identified as “major” statewide funders are generally updated several times per year.

In addition to our regular update procedure, when a subscriber or funder alerts us of a change, that update is reflected immediately in GrantFinder.

Why do some grants have dated information?

We work hard to ensure that each profile is as up-to-date as possible. We utilize funder websites, annual reports, financial information, and IRS Form 990s and are continuously in contact with funders in order to provide you with the most current information.

Although you might find a profile with seemingly dated information, this was the most recently available information at the time of updating. If you find more current information, please let us know.

Don't see a funder?

If you notice that a useful funder is not included in GrantFinder, please contact us and let us know. We always appreciate your oversight and assistance to ensure that GrantFinder is as comprehensive as possible!

Is the grant listing incorrect?
Although our Research team works hard to ensure that the profiles are as up-to-date and accurate as possible, grant listings oftern, and we are not always aware of or able to make changes as soon as they occur. Because of this, we always encourage subscribers to conduct as much research on a funder as possible before submitting an application.
