Foundation Center databases (In-Library Use only)
Foundation Directory Online provides nine comprehensive databases.

The interactive maps and charts show a foundation’s grants geographically—right down to the ZIP code—and by recipient type or primary subject with three levels of detail.
Foundation Grants to Individuals is an online database of nearly 10,000 foundation and public charity programs that fund students, artists, researchers, and other individual grantseekers.
Philanthropy In/Sight is an interactive mapping tool that combines the Foundation Center’s rich data on grantmakers and their grants with Google maps to tell the story of philanthropy.
Our librarians can assist you in person at the Information Desk, by phone, or email.
