The Foundation Center indexes nearly 100,000 U.S. private foundations and corporate grantmakers and over 2 million recent grants. Resources include a database of funding sources and aggregated statistics. This resource’s primary strength is the large amount of tax information it provides about the donors in its index. It is generally more useful for individuals seeking funding for nonprofits or large research grants rather than individual scholarships.
