I'm helping my organization's new President and funds wise our previous organization staff left us in terrible shape. We've had just enough to cover costs for our bowl game (major fundraiser) this fall. We've got some smaller fundraisers out there that we're planning in the mean time and reworking how we spend the money, however we're looking around to see if there are some grants to help us out. Previously no one in our league was tax-exempt. Our league will be tax-exempt for the first time this year, and they are trying to tell us that we can as an umbrella use that (of which I am highly dubious).
So I'm turning to y'all. Are there any reliable grants that y'all are aware of for either 501(c)3 or non-tax exempt associations? Any help on this matter would be appreciated!
(My understanding is that all the staff will be going through the USA Football training for the first time this year, I've had it for several years, and I'm aware of theirs, but I'm not counting on that.)
