Grants and Foundation Center Online Resources

St. Louis Public Library’s Grants and Foundation Center provides subscription access to the Candid (formerly the Foundation Centers) databases Foundation Directory Online and Foundation Grants to Individuals Online at Central Library (1301 Olive Street) on four reference computers in the Social Sciences room (2nd floor) and throughout Central Library.

Foundation Directory Online

Foundation Directory Online Professional provides access to timely, comprehensive information on grantmakers and their grants. Included is a database of the entire universe of U.S. foundations, corporate giving programs, and grantmaking public charities, plus a growing number of non-U.S. grantmakers; a database of sponsoring companies, offering a quick pathway to corporate funders; a database of recently awarded grants; and a keyword-searchable database of recently filed IRS Forms 990 and 990-PF.

Foundation Grants to Individuals Online

Foundation Grants to Individuals Online is the premier funding research tool for finding foundations that provide financial support for individual grantseekers, with information on giving for a variety of purposes, including scholarships, student loans, fellowships, program development, internships, professorships, arts and cultural projects, research, awards/grants by nomination only and general welfare. It is intended to be both a grantseeker's guide and a reference tool for those interested in foundation giving to individuals.

These resources are available Monday–Thursday 10 am–9 pm and Friday & Saturday 10 am–6 pm. at Central Library. 

Please contact Lisa Thorp, the Grants and Foundations Librarian, at 314 539-0357 or by email at if you would like to set up an appointment, or just drop in to explore the databases and see what you can find.
