Grants are a great way to contribute to school and community fundraising. It’s important to know what to look for, where to look and be prepared!

Instead of trying to fit your project into a grants program, we want you to prepare your project for when the RIGHT grant comes up.

Greenline has put together resources for grant applications and will continue to add to these resources.

We’ve also put together grants resources for many different industries. Take a look at our other grants pages if they apply to you:

As always we are more than happy to answer any questions and help you put together your project portfolio.
