Foundation Center Grants Databases

The Foundation Center maintains a publicly-available grants database -- Foundation Directory Online -- consisting of all grants of $10,000 or more from the largest 1,200 private and community foundations. All grants are classified using the NTEE system, as modified by the Foundation Center.

The current system also includes "indicative grants" from smaller foundations or smaller grants from larger foundations. These are intended to provide grantseekers with a sense of the types of grants being given, but, from a researcher's perspective, are not intended to be either a statistically valid sample or even necessarily representative of the small foundations or small grants.

The Foundation Center also maintains a research database of grants back to 1991. This, too, includes grants of $10,000 or more from the 1,200 largest foundations (at least for recent years), but excludes the "indicative grants."
