Does your nonprofit organization need help finding money? You've come to the right place!
The Nonprofit Resource Center offers free access to the Funding Information Network (FIN). The FIN is a suite of online databases from Candid (previously known as the Foundation Center). The FIN offers the most up-to-date information on available grant opportunities and funding history for 140,000+ U.S. and international foundations, corporations, and federal agencies.
The Nonprofit Resource Center and the Funding Information Network subscription are funded through generous donations from the Mullock Family and the United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.
The Nonprofit Resource Center, located in the Mullock Family Library, on the Cape May County Campus, is open to the public during library hours. Please check our current library hours prior to visiting. If you have questions, call the library circulation desk at (609) 463-3713.
In response to the challenges of providing access to FIN resources during the COVID-19 pandemic, Candid has been providing free online access to individuals through local FIN hosts like Atlantic Cape Community College to FDO Essential, an abridged version of the original FIN databases. To ensure the ongoing availability of a free secure system, Candid has now converted FDO Essential to a day-pass system requiring registration.
Before you can get access to the new FDO Essential, you must request a link from Atlantic Cape. You will then create an account that will give you access to the FDO Essential site for 24 hours every 30 days. To request a link, please send email to FIN@atlantic.edu

The Nonprofit Resource Center also offers periodic workshops (free of charge) on how to use the online research tools, write grant proposals, budget and financial management, and other topics of interest to nonprofit organizations. Check back for more information when we reopen the library.
The Grants to Individuals database identifies organizations that fund scholarships and creative or entrepreneurial projects. This tool is available only on campus at the Mullock Family Library and other locations on the Cape May County Campus.
Foundation Directory Online (FDO) database is a research tool that helps grant seekers locate the funding sources for nonprofit organizations, individuals, and businesses.
