A compilation of resources for grant and financial aid seekers.

Grant Searching Introduction

The University Libraries houses a collection of free print and electronic grant resources. We provide nonprofits and individuals training on finding grantmakers and determining grant prospects. We can also assist in locating resources on writing proposals, managing nonprofits, philanthropy, and more.

The Foundation Center by Candid works to support and improve philanthropy through data, analysis and training. The Foundation Directory Online and Foundation Grants to Individuals are two powerful databases created to assist grantseekers in finding the funding they need. Both are available to use for free at the UWSP Libraries.
