Nonprofit Resource Center and FIN

Funding Assistance for Nonprofits

Does your nonprofit organization need help finding money? You've come to the right place!

  • Grants for businesses and individuals, too!

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.
