How can I find foundations in my home state?

True, a lot of foundations like to give locally, but more and more foundations are giving beyond their state borders. Thus, if you're trying to find funders for your project, focus on where a foundation gives instead of where it lives. You might find that some of your strongest prospects -- those that have given a lot of grants or dollars for work like yours -- might live elsewhere.

Foundation Directory Online (FDO) subscription plans allow you to search for funders based on where they like to give. Use your state as a term in the "Geographic Focus" field. To find funders based on their location, use the "Location" field instead. Use FDO for free at all Foundation Center libraries and Funding Information Network locations.

Here are additional resources to find funders in your state:
