Foundation Center does not give grants/donations, suggest specific funders, or approach them on your behalf. More about Foundation Center's mission. But we can point you to resources that should help you in your funding search.

Most foundation funding is awarded to nonprofit organizations, not to individual grantseekers. However, Foundation Center has gathered resources for individual grantseekers, including the tools and web sites listed in the Support for Individual Grantseekers topic area of our web site.

Foundation Center's GrantSpace website features various articles in the Knowledge Base that could be useful to you and your applicants:

In addition, we have separate articles for artists and students.

We also publish Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, a directory of grantmakers that fund individual grantseekers. A print version of Foundation Grants to Individuals can be purchased online or accessed free of charge at the Foundation Center's libraries in Atlanta, Cleveland, New York, San Francisco, and Washington, DC, and at our Funding Information Network partners.

Please visit Foundation Center's Knowledge Services for useful tools and resources exclusively for grantmakers.
