|How to use 'Funding Opportunities'|
|This page is a quick "how-to" guide for using this section. It explains some of the Funding categories and how they are applied. |
Each funding source is listed separately in the database. They have been tagged with filters to help you separate out funding sources in separate categories, such as "Capital Works" or "Conservation, Preservation".
One item may be tagged with many filters. For example, an item can be tagged both "Philanthropic Funding" and "Capital Works". The items matching these filters will appear in searches for both "Philanthropic Funding" and "Capital Works".
Most funding categories are self-explanatory. Others, where it is helpful to add a brief explanatory note, are listed below.
To use the filters, simply choose them from the dropdown on the index page. You can get to the index page by clicking on the navigation to the left or the breadcrumbs above.
To use the keyword search (with our without filters) simply type in the keyword field and press "Search".
You can use the "next" and "previous" buttons on individual pages to browse the pages.
