GuideStar: Most resources here must be purchased, but the site does offer a free search of 990 filings with a Keyword component so that in addition to searching specific organizations already known to you, you can enter terms likely to occur in the names of the types of organizations that interest you, limit the location by city and/or state, and retrieve all the nonprofit organizations with those words in their name. After selecting one you must scroll down past the data available only to subscribers to reach the 990 forms for that organization--accessible via a free registration. Try to target organizations similar to your own and then check to see if and from whom they are receiving grant funding.
