Riverhead Free Library is proud to be a part of the Foundation Center’s Funding Information Network.
RFL provides free, in-library public access to the FOUNDATION DIRECTORY ONLINE PROFESSIONAL, which provides nine comprehensive databases. In addition to grantmakers, companies, grants, and 990s, Professional's new Power Search tool lets you search RFPs, news, jobs, foundation-sponsored publications, and nonprofit literature. Professional's interactive maps and charts show a foundation's grants geographically—right down to the ZIP code—and by recipient type or primary subject with three levels of detail.
With this database, you have access to information about:
Over 120,000 foundations, corporate donors, and grantmaking public charities
Over 3 million recent grants
Over 1 million IRS 990s — fully keyword-searchable
Cross-Border Giving-See grants from U.S. grantmakers to non-U.S. recipients on interactive maps
54 search fields including keyword search.
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.
We also have a wide variety of Foundation and Grants related print resources, including:
Please note that these online databases are accessible only inside the library at our 330 Court Street location.
