Necessary Funds are Available
After determining your monetary needs, you will know how much grant money you have to find. Make sure, however, to read through the funding criteria for grants you are seeking. Some of them require matching funds from school districts or other sources. If you cannot find these other sources of money, you will probably have to look elsewhere for grants. One positive, however, is that many organizations allow 'in-kind' matching funds. For example, if you have a professional volunteer their time to help you with your project, you can receive a 'credit' for how much their services would actually cost in the real world.
