There is a Foundation library at the UM and in Southfield MI. I used to go there to research granting organizations. They had info on every foundation and what they were writing checks for. There is also a big book. I think its called the Foundation Book. It gives you a starting point. Your state arts council may have a grant writing workshop. Check with them. Also, don't forget to check with the economic development agency in your state. Grant writing was a realy pain! You have to be so careful in projecting a budget. After you get the money, you then have to justify how every penny was spent. So keep really good records and don't forget to add in a contingency amount in case costs are higher than expected.
