In January the TGRC has a skeleton crew. Patrons may access the Foundation Center database on a drop-in basis. Appointments with staff will not be made in January. However, it is suggested that the public call ahead to ensure the CEC offices are open for Foundation Center database access: 512-232-8586. Please check this web page periodically for updates.
For more than 50 years, the Texas Grants Resource Center (TGRC) has served as a bridge between the grant-seeking and the grant-making communities.
The TGRC is a unit within the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE) at the University of Texas at Austin. It is located in the DDCE’s Community Engagement Center at 505 East Huntland Drive, suite 270.
The TGRC contains core publications from The Foundation Center, the leading source of philanthropy information, as well as other major materials in fund development, grants, and nonprofit management. It provides free access to multiple Foundation Center online funding research tools.
The TGRC has one of the most extensive Foundation Directory archives in the United States and is the fifth-oldest Foundation Center Funding Information Network partner.
The TGRC offers consultations and orientations for funding research, for both nonprofit organizations and individuals. Because of the availability of electronic information on state and federal grant opportunities, the TGRC emphasizes private sector funding options and information (i.e., private foundations and corporate foundations/direct giving programs). It has little on-site information about small business startups.
In keeping with its original commitment to make information accessible to all, the TGRC is open to everyone, free of charge.
