Philanthropy Collection

Established in 2000, the Philanthropy Collection supports the information needs of nonprofit organizations located in DuPage County. We provide our patrons with free public access to grant-maker directories, books on fundraising and nonprofit management and several philanthropic databases.

As a member of this nationwide network of libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit agencies, we provide visitors with free public access to grantmaker directories, books on fundraising and nonprofit management, and the Foundation Center’s electronic databases, Foundation Directory Online Professional, Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, and Foundation Maps. These fully searchable databases include detailed profiles of all active U.S. foundations, an extensive file of recent grants awarded by the nation's top funders, and interactive mapping tools.

The Collection is available to all visitors whenever the Library is open. Users that have COD Library cards can also check out materials.
