Government: Government funding is earned revenue obtained by offering services—usually for community good—paid for by the government.
Grants: Grant income comes from a private foundation, community foundation, federated fund (such as United Way), or other group that distributes funds to nonprofits, generally in a competitive process involving a written request.
Individual donations: Gifts from individuals and families are individual donations. This stream includes everything from small donations, to special event revenue from individuals and endowments.

Mission income: Mission income is funding your nonprofit earns by doing its mission and providing services or products associated with it.
