In addition to its libraries in Atlanta, Cleveland, New York, San Francisco, and
Washington, D.C., the Foundation Center has a nationwide network comprised of libraries,
community foundations, and nonprofit resource centers called the Funding Information Network. In hundreds of
locations, our Network partners
provide free access to a core group of Center publications for public reference, access to Internet resources,
and some level of instruction on how to do funding research. These libraries provide access to
the best and most comprehensive information available on foundations and corporate giving.
Every state has at least one Network partner, and many have partners in more than one city.
Many partners have additional
materials, including other Center publications and those of other publishers. They may also have
state funding directories, fundraising periodicals, foundation application guidelines and/or annual
reports, videotapes, CD-ROMs, and IRS Form 990-PF (IRS
returns filed by private foundations). 990-PF forms for all private foundations are also available on
the web as PDF links from the Foundation Finder.
