Grants and Foundations
The Virginia Science and Technology Campus Library is a Funding Information Network (FIN) Partner of the Foundation Center, offering resources that help non-profit organizations and individuals identify sources of grants and foundation funding.
**Note: staff will not be available to assist new Foundation Center visitors to our location on Mar. 22 or Apr. 10-12, 2019. Returning visitors with active GW computer logins are welcome to work independently on those dates.**
Please note: Foundation Center resources are available to the public during library business hours. Always check our hours page before your visit to confirm that the library is operating on a normal schedule, and that staff would be available to assist you (new visitors, please request an appointment). Non-GW visitors will not be permitted entry when a library staff member is not scheduled, or during University holidays and closures.
Foundation Center Users' Visiting Policy:
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 create a guest account for our computers). Please contact the library at least two business days ahead of your planned visit by phone 571-553-8230 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Be prepared to show a valid photo ID at the security desk when you enter the building (Enterprise Hall); the library is one floor above the entrance level in Room 179.
Due to limited staffing, we may need to offer you alternative dates/times for appointments, although we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.
If you are brand-new to searching the Foundation Directory Online database (nonprofit grantseekers), we strongly recommend the Foundation Center's "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 unexpired GW library computing guest account are welcome to stop by anytime during posted business hours to work independently (no appointment necessary). Thank you!
