Find Funding Opportunities

This guide is intended to help University of Texas at Austin faculty, staff, and students find funding opportunities.

Foundations and the Texas Grants Resource Center

Looking for a Match

We expect foundations to have money but not to advertise its availability.  Those who seek foundation funding look for a suitable match; that is, foundations with matching interests and sufficient funds.  For this information:

  • The Foundation Center has been doing this for a long time.  Staff collect information about foundations (many are reported not to have websites) and create a searchable database of foundation information.  Plus, the organization supplies educational materials on topics related to philanthropy.  For access:  
  • Guidestar proclaims itself to be "the world's largest source of information on nonprofit organizations," including foundations.  There's a free search option and a "premium" option, which requires payment.
  • NOZA describes itself as "the world’s largest searchable database of charitable donations," including foundation grants.  For those signing up outside the UT umbrella, there is a small-group free option for searching the foundation information.
