  • The Center’s three powerful databases are accessible free of charge on Library computers.  
  • Foundation Directory Online Professional  (for nonprofits) and Grants to Individuals help grantseekers identify foundations that award grants in their fields of interest.  Philanthropy In/Sight is an interactive mapping tool that grantseekers use to gather intelligence to  craft compelling grant proposals. 
  • These databases are accessible from any computer on-site in the Library.
