Foundation Directory Logo Foundation Directory Online Professional provides access to essential facts on grantmakers and their funding activities worldwide. To pinpoint prospective funders, explore four comprehensive databases: Grantmakers, Companies, Grants, and 990s. With geographic search tools, you can zoom in on regional and local grantmakers or grants by state, county, city, metro area, congressional district and ZIP code. Choose from over 1,100 indexed search terms or keyword-search. Interactive maps and charts show a funder's giving trends, and you can click through to see recipient lists and grant details.
Foundation Grants to Ind Logo 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.
