Funding Information Library

What is the Funding Information Library?

If you’re involved with a nonprofit organization or an individual grantseeker we can help you. Our resource center provides free public access to the Foundation Center’s core collection, plus our own library of over 200 titles.

This includes grant directories, books, periodicals and videos on fundraising, board development, executive leadership, marketing and communications and nonprofit management.

You’ll have free access to the Foundation Center’s electronic databases, The Foundation Directory Online Professional, on three computer terminals. This fully searchable database includes detailed profiles of all active U.S. foundations, as well as an extensive file of recent grants awarded by the nation’s top funders.

We also have Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, where you can research more than 6,200 foundation and public charity programs that fund artists, students, researchers, and other individual grantseekers.

The Foundation Center’s Online Librarian can also answer your questions about foundations, philanthropy and fundraising research. Click on the icon to learn more.
