The University of Colorado Boulder campus now has access to Foundation Directory Online, thanks to a collaboration between the University Libraries, the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Advancement. The tool can be used for finding grant funding, researching companies and seeking job opportunities.

The data in Foundation Directory Online, which is updated weekly, is compiled from IRS information returns, grantmaker websites, annual reports, printed application guidelines, the philanthropic press and various other sources. It includes more than 140,000 foundations, corporate giving programs and grantmaking public charities in the U.S.; a database of more than 4,000 sponsoring companies, offering a quick pathway to corporate funders; a database of over 3.8 million recently awarded grants; and a keyword-searchable database of more than one million recently filed IRS Forms 990 and 990-PF.

You can access the tool on campus or using VPN by visiting
