By looking at snapshots from their 990 reports, you can analyze a funder's previous giving trends. These have a lot of information about a funder's past giving patterns, so it's easy to see if they have given grants to your area in the same amount and for the same reasons as the funding you're looking for.
A quick look at an organization's NTEE codes and subcategories—that’s an excellent way to determine whether or not you are eligible to apply for a certain opportunity and whether or not the amount you are requesting is appropriate and in line with the foundation's giving history.
Save 3 hours per funder per week. Look at the funder's average and median grant amounts in the past to determine whether or not this grant should be pursued. It's helpful to know that foundations occasionally fund significantly more than their stated minimum.
