Visitors to Foundation Center’s Funding Information Network (FIN) at the GCSP gain access to a wealth of information on grants and grantmakers around the world, plus training on how to use this information - all at no charge.
FIN offers electronic and print resources—databases, directories, and other publications—as well as workshops and programs for local nonprofits.
Established in 1956 and today supported by close to 550 foundations, Foundation Center is the leading source of information about philanthropy worldwide. Through data, analysis, and training, it connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to succeed. Foundation Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global grantmakers and their grants—a robust, accessible knowledge bank for the sector. It also operates research, education, and training programs designed to advance knowledge of philanthropy at every level. Thousands of people gain access to Foundation Center’s free and affordable resources at its website, in its five regional library/learning centers, and through its Funding Information Network.
The Foundation Center highlighted the successful implementation of the first FIN in Switzerland by the GCSP by naming us the August FIN of the Month.
