The Foundation Center
The Foundation Center is the leading source of information about philanthropy worldwide. While much of the Center's work focuses on foundation funding for organizations and "causes," it also provides information, resources, and tools for Individual Grantseekers.
The following sections of the Center's web site are especailly relevant for visual artists.
The Salt Lake City Public Library provides IN-LIBRARY access to the Center's database for Individual Grantseekers, which allows you to search for foundations that provide financial support for individual grantseekers. It describes giving for a variety of purposes, including scholarships, student loans, fellowships, program development, internships, professorships, arts and cultural projects, research, awards/grants by nomination only and general welfare.
