Nonprofit Resource Centers

Nonprofit Resource Center Features

The Nonprofit Resource Centers (NRC) 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 and Guidestar). 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 Centers are made possible thanks to the Atlantic Cape Foundation, the ThriveAC Fund and the Cape May County BizHub.

  • The Foundation Directory Online (FDO) database is a research tool that helps grant seekers locate the funding sources for nonprofit organizations, individuals, and businesses.
  • The Grants to Individuals database identifies organizations that fund scholarships and creative or entrepreneurial projects.
