Database Access for Grant Seekers

Research and Databases

The Central Library’s Grant Resource Center has many resources available to help you with grant seeking, including the Foundation Directory Online database. At this time, due to COVID-19, one-on-one appointments are not being taken, but, remote access is available for several helpful databases. As a partner of the Funding Information Network of Candid, a nationwide network of libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit agencies, these fully searchable databases include detailed profiles of all active U.S. foundations, an extensive file of recent grants awarded by the nation’s top funders, and interactive mapping tools.  Additionally, grantseekers can look here: Foundation Directory Online Essential *Remote Access*.  For additional information check the Grant Resource Center of the Rochester Public Library.
