So many people out there want to start a foundation, a non-profit organization, an international Ngo to enable them to access grants and funding but do not know what to do. We at Grant Foundation can help you set up your non-profit foundation or your Ngo. Come with me, let me walk you through the steps of how to start up your Ngo and get funding in the United States of America.

A foundation can be a boys and girls club, a senior citizens program, a youth mentorship initiative, basketball club, training programs and several other causes. They all constitute what we call, Foundations and there are grants to assist you in setting these projects up.

To start a non-profit organization or Ngo, first, you need to process your non-profit organization with the Corporations department of the secretary of state. For those outside the United States of America, you can set this up at the corporate affairs commissions in your various countries.

The next step is to obtain what we call, a Federal tax Id from the internal revenue service and then you process your bylaws. If you don’t know what to do, you can always contact us and we can help you.

The next thing on how to start up your ngo and get funding in the United States of America is that you need to process your IRS Form 1023, once this form is processed and approved, you receive a status which is called 501(c)(3). Now, if you plan to solicit funds you need a state solicitation permit from the Secretary of state in your respective states here in the United States. This will enable you to solicit funds in your various states. If you plan to apply for grants, you need a Duns number. You can always process your Duns number from the website of Duns & Bradstreet.

Next, you need to set up an account with sam.gov, federal desk registration and grants.gov. These will enable you to apply for federal grants.

Federal grants are often announced on a website called grants.gov. To apply for a federal grant, first, you need to identify a federal grants announcement on grants.gov website. Next, you need to set up an application workstation on the portal, follow the instructions carefully to apply. A complete application will include needs assessment, project goals and objectives, methodology, timelines, sustainability plans, evaluation, budget and budget analysis.

Once your grants application is complete, you then submit on grants.gov. For most federal grants, funding is received within 6-9 months if it is properly done.

You can also decide to apply for Foundation grants. Foundation grants are different from federal grants. Foundation grants are private organizations that disburse grants to non-profit organizations. We have a comprehensive database of thousands of foundation grants located in the United States. You can download our mobile app. It is called Grant Foundations. You can find it both in Apple and in Android Store. You can request a hard copy by visiting our website jefftechsolutions.com.

The process of writing a foundation grant proposal is similar to federal grants. The steps include:

The Problem statement: This is where you talk about what your organization wants to do, who is going to do it and how they are going to do it.

The next thing is what we call The Capacity of the applicant. You need to be able to explain if you have sufficient capacity to implement the project you are trying to do.

Next are the Goals and objectives, and program description.

The 5th step is what we call, the timelines, sustainability plans, evaluation, budget and budget analysis.

Once you cover all these steps in a proposal then your proposal is ready for submission. You can also send us an email and get a response within 24 hours. Our email is startnonprofit@yahoo.com.
