Grants and Foundations

Foundation Center logo   


The Virginia Science and Technology Campus Library is a Funding Information Network (FIN) Partner of the Foundation Center.

The Virginia Science and Technology Campus Library works in cooperation with the Foundation Center in Washington D.C. to offer resources that help non-profit organizations and individuals identify sources of grants and foundation funding.


Please note: Foundation Center resources are available during library business hours. Always check our hours page before your visit to confirm that the library is operating on a normal schedule! Non-GW visitors will not be permitted entry when a library staff member is not present, or during University holidays and closures.

**Foundation Center in-person assistance will not be available from May 21-29, 2018. Non-GW visitors will not have library access. Please make arrangements with library staff to schedule appointments either before or after those dates.**


First-time users should contact us prior to arrival to schedule an appointment with our staff (new visitors to our location will require help to log into the Foundation Center databases). Please contact the library at least one business day ahead of your visit by phone 571-553-8230 or email virginia@gwu.edu.

If you are brand-new to searching the Foundation Directory Online database (nonprofit grantseekers), we strongly recommend the Foundation Center "Introduction to Finding Grants" video in preparation for your library visit. Click here to view the free 30-minute video.

Returning visitors who have an active GW library computing guest account are welcome to stop by anytime during posted business hours (no appointment necessary). Thank you!
