The new FDO Professional includes:

  • 500,000+ key decision makers and leaders
  • Searchable 990s and 990-PFs
  • Details about 9.5 MILLION + grants
  • Maps and charts
  • Federal Grants

Foundation Maps is Foundation Center's premier data visualization tool and the easiest way to see who is funding what and where around the world. With millions of grants from 2006 to the present, innovative ways to visualize funding data, and the flexibility and precision to tailor research, helps funders and nonprofits access the knowledge they need to make strategic decisions and strengthen their impact.

Resources for Individuals

HPL provides access to the FOUNDATION CENTER'S GRANTS TO INDIVIDUALS, an online database of nearly 10,000 grantmakers funding students, artists, researchers and other individual grantseekers through scholarships, grants and fellowships. Information contained about each funder includes application information, limitations on funding and financial data. A detailed HELP section is also included.


These databases are accessible only at our 338 Main Street location. For training on either database, please call Therese Purcell Nielsen at 631-427-5165 or email
