About Our Database of Funder Profiles

3100+ funder profiles  |  250 curated funder lists

  • Written with you in mind – Profiles are written to benefit the grantseeker
  • Advanced Search – Type of Support. Fields of Interest. Giving and Asset Totals. Geographic Interests. Application Process, including deadlines
  • Lots of links – Links to funder websites, recent 990PFs, online application pages,  Twitter and Facebook pages, recent funder publications (annual reports, grants lists, etc.).
  • Funders of all sizes, including 400+ small family foundations.
  • Know the limitations – Find out if a funder limits their giving geographically, gives exclusively in only one field of interest, awards less than $1,000,000 per year, or accepts unsolicited proposals (and if not, others ways to communicate with them)
  • Learn what funders are really supporting– Funders don’t always do as they say. We show you grants that funders are awarding in areas outside their expressed interests.
  • We read the 990 for you! Each profile has a graph comparing the funder’s historical giving patterns and a sample of key grantees.
