Foundation Center

We are a part of the Foundation Center’s Funding Information Network. The Foundation Center is the nation’s leading authority on organized philanthropy and serves grantseekers, grantmakers, and the general public. Our partnership in the network is made possible by the generous support of the Douglas County Community Foundation.

In addition to reference books and circulating titles, we provide access to three powerful tools:

  • Foundation Directory Online -Searchable database of over 100,000 grantmakers. Available in the library on our public computers, on your laptop via our wireless network.
  • Foundation Grants to Individuals Online – Geared toward individuals and small organizations, includes over 10,000 foundations and public charity programs. Available in the library on our public computers or on your laptop via our wireless network.
  • Foundation Maps – Uses aggregated data and demographic maps to reveal patterns of foundation giving and funding relationships. Available in the library on our public computers or on your laptop via our wireless network.
