The Funding Information Network
Lawrence University has partnered with Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region, Oshkosh Area United Way, and United Way Fox Cities to bring a Funding Information Network (FIN) location to our community. Based at Lawrence’s Seeley G. Mudd library, FIN makes available a wealth of Foundation Center information: searchable grant and funder databases, proposal writing guides, and even online access to the Foundation Center’s grant reference librarians.
What is Funding Information Network?
Located throughout the country and around the world, Funding Information Network partners offer free access to the Foundation Center’s detailed information on grantmakers and applying for grants. The resources include:
• Foundation Directory Online Professional Edition—searchable database of over 140,000 grantmakers (foundations, corporate grantmakers, public charities) and more than 3.8 million grants. Multiple filters and analysis tools help you identify your best potential funding sources.
• Foundation Grants to Individuals—over 10,000 records on grantmakers that support individual grantseekers. Updated weekly, it's an ideal resource for students, artists, and researchers.
• Foundation Maps—an interactive mapping tool that can quickly create maps that reveal patterns of giving and funding relationships.
• Print resources including directories, proposal writing guides, and resources for nonprofit governance.
