About the Foundation Center
Established in 1956, the Foundation Center is the nation's leading source of information about philanthropy, connecting nonprofits and the grantmakers supporting them to tools they can use and information they can trust.

The center, located on the second floor of Blair Library, has access to the Foundation Directory Online, a treasure trove of information on over 100,000 foundations and over 2.5 million recently awarded grants. While most private funding goes to nonprofit organizations, the center also offers online access to Grants for Individuals, a database of more than 8,000 grantmaker programs that award money directly to individuals.
