Funding News and Grant Tips

'Giving USA' Finds Charitable Giving Rises 3.5 Percent in 2012
Total charitable contributions by individuals, corporations, and foundations were an estimated $316.23 billion in 2012, up 3.5 percent, or 1.5 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars, from a revised estimate of $305.45 billion in 2011, a new report from the Giving USA Foundation and the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy finds.
According to the 58th annual Giving USA report, giving by individuals in 2012 rose an estimated 3.9 percent (1.9 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars), to $228.93 billion. Bolstered by a 9.1 percent jump in contributions by community foundations, giving by private, community, and operating foundations increased 4.4 percent (2.3 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars) to an estimated $45.74 billion. And bequests fell an estimated 7 percent (-8.9 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars), to $23.41 billion. The report also found that corporate giving — which includes giving by corporations and their foundations — increased 12.2 percent (9.9 percent adjusted for inflation), to an estimated $18.15 billion, including roughly $131 million in support of relief efforts in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy.
"The uncertainty among donors created by policy makers' examination of the charitable deduction likely influenced giving in two very different ways in 2012," said Giving Institute chair David H. King. "Some donors may have 'prepaid' gifts they had intended to make in 2013 to ensure they received a tax benefit, while others may have chosen not to donate out of concern that deductions for very large gifts would not carry over in 2013 and beyond."
According to the report, giving to religious organizations remained flat in 2012, declining an estimated 0.2 percent (-2.2 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars), to $101.54 billion — although religion continued to receive the largest share of charitable giving (32 percent). It was followed by education, which received an estimated $41.33 billion, human services ($40.4 billion), health ($28.12 billion), public society benefit ($21.63 billion), and international affairs ($19.11 billion). Giving to arts and culture organizations ($14.44 billion) and animal welfare and environmental groups ($8.3 billion) grew significantly, with increases of 7.8 percent (5.7 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars) and 6.8 percent (4.7 percent), respectively. The report also found that giving to foundations fell 4.6 percent (-6.5 percent in inflation-adjusted dollars), to an estimated $30.58 billion.
"While total charitable giving is continuing to grow, at current growth rates it is less likely to reach the 2007 benchmark high of $344.48 billion for at least six to seven years, adjusted for inflation," said Patrick M. Rooney, associate dean of academic affairs and research at the Lilly Family School of Philanthropy. "Individual giving rose 1.9 percent after inflation, perhaps reflecting the fact that the average household is still struggling in some areas."

HIV/AIDS and Substance Use among Black/African American Women and Young MSM (R01): RFA-DA-14-010
SOURCE: National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Letter of Intent: 10/15/13. Application: 11/15/13, by 5 pm local time of applicant organization.
$ AVAILABLE: NIH intends to fund an estimate of six to eight awards, corresponding to a total of $4.5 million, for fiscal year 2014.
ELIGIBILITY: Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education, Hispanic-serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), Alaska native and native Hawaiian serving institutions, nonprofits with or without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education), for-profit organizations (other than small businesses), eligible agencies of the federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations.
PURPOSE: To improve understanding of the intersection of HIV/AIDS and drug abuse, this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is part of a multipronged 2014 expansion of HIV and AIDS related research within the context of drug and alcohol abuse among understudied populations and in understudied settings that show promise for the development of effective prevention and treatment efforts. In addition to this funding opportunity, others included in the 2014 expansion address HIV/AIDS and substance use among the homeless and unstably housed (RFA-DA-14-009); the integration of substance abuse and HIV prevention and treatment within HIV/AIDS service delivery settings (RFA-DA-14-011); exploratory research on comorbid HIV, chronic pain, and substance use among older adults (RFA-DA-14-012); and Seek, Test, Treat, and Retain Data Harmonization Coordinating Center (RFA-DA-14-007).
This FOA seeks R01 research grant applications 1) to conduct research that expands our understanding of the intersection between substance use and HIV among Black/African American women (BAAW) and young Black/African American men who have sex with men (YBAAMSM), and 2) to develop and test interventions that improve HIV prevention and care among BAAW and YBAAMSM, with attention to substance use and its consequences. These populations bear a disproportionate burden of HIV infection in the US. Infections of BAAW have plateaued since the mid-2000s but there is considerable local variation. YBAAMSM have shown continued and consistent increases in HIV acquisitions since the early days of the epidemic and represent the population with the greatest increase in new cases during recent years. Individual HIV risk behaviors in these populations are not elevated relative to Caucasian; however, social and structural factors appear to amplify risk and reduce engagement in preventive services, screening and care among BAAW and YBAAMSM. Despite these common social/structural factors, there are important differences with, for example, BAAMSM cases being disproportionately in younger ages than those for BAAW. More attention to unique and common factors in these populations is needed to improve our understanding of HIV risk and transmission, as well as the development of more effective intervention strategies.

Integrating Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment within HIV/AIDS Service Delivery Settings (R01): RFA-DA-14-011
SOURCE: National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: Letter of Intent: 10/15/13. Application: 11/15/13, by 5 pm local time of applicant organization.
$ AVAILABLE: NIH intends to commit $3 million in FY2014 to fund an estimated four to six awards.
ELIGIBILITY: Public/state/private controlled institutions of higher education, nonprofits with and without 501(c)(3) IRS status (other than institutions of higher education), small businesses, for-profit organizations (other than small businesses), state governments, U.S. territories or possessions, Indian/Native American tribal government (federally recognized and other than federally recognized), Indian/Native American tribally designated organizations, non-domestic (non-U.S.) entities, Hispanic-serving institutions, Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Tribally Controlled Colleges and Universities (TCCUs), Alaska native and native Hawaiian serving institutions, regional organizations, eligible agencies of the federal government, and faith-based or community-based organizations.

Efforts to prevent, detect, and treat drug and alcohol abuse, addiction, and their consequences can be improved by integrating existing evidence-based approaches into clinical settings in which high-risk populations are currently engaged in care for common co-occurring conditions. Of high priority are those settings in which individuals receive ongoing care for HIV/AIDS, but which do not routinely deliver evidence-based drug and alcohol abuse screening, prevention, and treatment services. Such settings include freestanding or hospital-based comprehensive HIV centers, community-based AIDS service organizations, and other HIV service providers supported by the Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program and other state and federal funds for HIV services. Service integration is equally needed in prevention-oriented settings (including sexually-transmitted infection [STI] clinics) where screening for drug and alcohol problems can be integrated with screening for HIV and other conditions. NIDA encourages hypothesis-driven research project applications to test implementation strategies for integrating evidence-based substance abuse services with HIV care in these settings.

By the end of class, participants will have the tools to: inventory the scope, depth, history and recent performance of your fundraising program; look at the full breadth of a successful fundraising program in comparison to the size and capacity of your organization; and evaluate your strengths and opportunities for realistic growth.
The target audience are executive directors and those who work with fundraising and development activities.
COST: $65 members / $115 non-members.
