Need to Find Grants?

Locating grant opportunities and funders is one of the most important parts of grants work. If you need to locate opportunities and re not yet able or ready to work with a consultant, I recommend using Instrumentl as your one-stop grants research tool. It's what I use and I think it's better than anything else on the market (including the OG of grants research databases, Foundation Directory Online).

With Instrumentl, you can:

  • Discover funders and new grant opportunities
  • Research and identify best-fit funders in seconds
  • Track and manage pre-award & post-award grant opportunities, tasks, contacts, cultivation work, and more

Over 3,000 nonprofits, grant consultants, and institutions use Instrumentl as their single source

of truth for grants. Start your free 14-day Instrumentl trial here and use my partner code, CAIN50, to save $50 your first month!
