Knowledge Base

Where can I find information on grants to non-U.S. organizations?

The Map of International Grants is our free interactive map showing recent grants awarded to recipients based in other countries. While this sample includes only a portion of direct cross-border grants made, it provides a picture of giving to international recipients by larger independent, corporate, or community foundations and grantmaking public charities.

For more customized searches and detailed profiles, we also offer:

Foundation Directory Online - This is our primary database of grantmakers. Try the following searches:

  • Country Name search to find funders in your country.
  • Geographic Focus search for "International" that give outside of their home countries.
  • Field of Interest search for your country, region, or continent.

Foundation Maps - Our premier data visualization tool and the easiest way to see who is funding what and where around the world, drawing from millions of grants from 2006 to the present. 

To use these resources from your own computer, subscribe via the links above. They also are free to use at Foundation Center libraries and Funding Information Network locations. If a location is not near you, consider asking friends abroad who are near our locations if they can help you with your funding research. 

If you are new to grantseeking, we suggest starting with these free classes, offered as live/recorded webinars or text-only tutorials:
