Fundraising news, ideas and inspiration for professional charity fundraisers

Free access to database of US funders – foundations and corporations

If you want to research grants awarded in the USA, then check out the website of The Chronicle of Philanthropy. It currently allows searches for all grants from foundations and corporations published by The Chronicle since 2006. After July 26, 2011, the database will be restricted to Chronicle subscribers.

If you’re looking at US funders, and have not yet subscribed to one of the various online databases, this might be a useful place to start.
