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 Campus and Community Engagement (DCCE) at the University of Texas at Austin.
The TGRC contains core publications from Candid, 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 Candid online funding research tools.
The TGRC has one of the most extensive Foundation Directory Online archives in the United States and is the fifth-oldest Candid 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.
As a Funding Information Network partner of Candid, the Texas Grants Resource Center offers valuable online tools and core publications from Candid.
The TGRC offers free access to online funding research tools from Candid:
