The Foundation Center Directory is a fundamental tool for finding information about grants and those foundations that make grants. Updated weekly, it includes information on more than 98,000 private foundations and the grants they have awarded. But that is really only the beginning of how the Directory and the Foundation Center website can help you.
The home page of the Foundation Center Directory Online is loaded with useful, fun information. You can easily see funding trends for any number of areas within Iowa and in other states and nationally. You can also see who are major funders for Iowa State University and other Iowa universities, as well as who funds in your subject areas.
