What’s the difference?
What’s the difference between OpenGrants and Foundation Center?
Foundation Center is a comprehensive directory of U.S. foundations, their leaders, and the funding they offer. All of Foundation Center’s services are paid subscriptions, and fees vary depending on users and the quantity of data needed.
OpenGrants is a grant search engine with 5,000+ grant listings including federal, state, local, private, and international grants. It’s also an expert marketplace where grant seekers can find and hire verified professionals to help them win funding.
How should you use these tools?
Nonprofits that conduct serious and ongoing fundraising from foundations—and have staff to support those efforts—can use Foundation Center to support their research, networking and fundraising efforts.
Nonprofit and for-profit organizations of all sizes can use OpenGrants to search for active grant funding for free. Those that need outsourced help can also hire qualified professionals to support the grant discovery and application process.
