The Foundation Directory Online is comprised of two searchable databases. The foundation database houses a collection of data on the largest foundations in the United States -- more than 57,000 in all -- meeting the Foundation Center's definition of private or community foundations. The grants database is a collection ofapproximately 160,000 grants awarded by approximately the 1,200 largest of these foundations. It is intended to give researchers a clear sense of each foundation's funding history and giving patterns. The information contained in The Foundation Directory Online Subscription Service was compiled from IRS information returns for private foundations (Form 990-PF), journal and newspaper articles related to foundation activities, and publications and electronic files sent directly from foundations, such as grants lists, annual reports, program guidelines, and press releases. Requests for verification were sent to all foundations included in the database.
