Unfortunately, the library does not subscribe to the Foundation Center's database. There are two copies of the most recent edition of the print version of the Foundation Directory available. One is at the Social Work library. The other copy is at the West Campus library, which you may request to be sent to any library on the Danforth Campus.
In terms of online access to grant-related databases, there are two options. There is a database called Grant Forward (formerly known as IRIS) to which the university subscribes. It has several ways to refine a search including, “Sponsor Type,” “Type” [of grant], and “Applicant Type”.
There is also a database called “GrantStation”. It is available at the Social Work Library. The description from Olin Library’s web page says, “GrantStation is an online funding resource for organizations seeking grants throughout the world. Providing access to a comprehensive online database of grant makers, as well as other valuable tools, GrantStation can help your organization make smarter, better-informed fundraising decisions. NOTE: Available in the School of Social Work; please ask at the Social Work Library to be logged in.”
