Points to remember:

  • The Foundation Directory Online Professional is the database I demonstrated. It is located on the Foundation Center Funding Databases tab.
  • It’s only available for use in the Eagle Commons Library (ECL) on the UNT campus.
  • The Training tab has links to training in the areas of grants and nonprofit management. Most of the training on the Foundation Center sites is online and free.
  • At the bottom of the introductory page you will find a map and information about parking.

If you want help finding available grants, please contact Diane Wahl at 940-891-6897. If Diane is not available, call the Eagle Commons Library at 940-565-2194 and tell them you are calling about Funding Information Network services. You’ll be able to make an appointment to come in for one on one assistance.
