We expect foundations to offer money but not necessarily to advertise its availability. Those who seek foundation funding look for the right match; that is, foundations with matching interests and sufficient funds.
1. The Foundation Directory is the best-known supplier of information concerning foundations and the money they give. Staff collect information about foundations (including those without websites) and their grants, and create a searchable database of the information.
The database is available in an Essential (basic)versionand in a
Professional version showing all the "essential" information plus past grants --- with past grants providing valuable information about what is supported by the foundation.
For a comparison of the basic and premium versions, along with pricing, see the information page.
Candid is the relatively new organization combining the Foundation Center (the long-time sponsor of the Foundation Directory) and Guidestar. On the Candid page, see "Candid at a Glance" (at the top right)for a list of available databases and products.
Guidestarclaims tobe "the world's largest source of information on nonprofit organizations," including foundations. There's a free search option and paid options for better access.
2. NOZAprovides "theworld’s largest searchable database of charitable donations," including foundation grants. Some information is offered for free, though payment is required for advanced options.
