In response to the continuing public health situation in Austin and to protect the health of our patrons and staff, the Texas Grants Resource Center public space will be closed for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. All programming and grant-seeker support will proceed virtually via the following channels:
If you are seeking nonprofit funding, please choose one of these options to complete a grant search:
- Request access to the Foundation Directory Online via this link to be emailed access to the database and search for grant opportunities from your work space. We recommend attending a TGRC orientation before using this database – orientation schedule is below.
- Request a grant search through our Grant Search Concierge service – complete the form at the link and a TGRC staff member will be in touch. Please note that wait times can be up to 5 business days, depending on the volume of requests. Only requests submitted through this form will be completed.
If you are seeking funding for a project not part of a nonprofit organization, or seeking scholarship or other academic funding, please request a grant search through our Grant Search Concierge

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.
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.
