Grant Applications and New Funding Opportunities to Support Nonprofits Now Open Online

MAITLAND, Fla. (October 27, 2020) – Grant applications are now being accepted by the American Fundraising Foundation (AmFund) for unrestricted funding. Applications will be accepted until midnight (Eastern), December 1, 2020. Organizations can submit a simple application online at www.AmFund.org/giving. This is a first step to qualify for a Golden Pear Grant and for other funding opportunities now being provided.

“The application process is simple and intended to reduce the amount of time an organization spends in submitting their request, so they can be about the greater work they are doing every day,” said Deborah Marshall, Chief Operating Officer of AmFund. “This year, perhaps more than ever, we understand the extraordinary needs of nonprofits and this is a definitive step toward funding their needs.”

“We also recognize the variety of organizations that have been overlooked – that still provide significant physical, emotional, mental and spiritual support to millions across America,” Marshall continued. “We review and consider every applicant whether it is one that feeds the hungry, houses the homeless, teaches a child to read, rescues an animal or provides soul satisfying music or art, and so many more.”

Earlier this year, AmFund expanded its support to nonprofit organizations through relevant educational programs, increased funding opportunities, and the introduction of its Golden Pear Grants. Twenty-one worthy organizations received grants in August ranging in amounts from $1,000 to $10,000 and other organizations have received over $650,000 this year in unrestricted donations from AmFund as a result of its signature virtual and hybrid events.

The American Fundraising Foundation, a GuideStar Platinum rated 501(c)3 nonprofit, has donated over 36 million dollars to other service-providing nonprofits over the course of the past 20 years.
