Welcome to the Foundation Center-New York, one of five library/learning centers operated by the Foundation Center, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. The Foundation Center's mission to strengthen the social sector by advancing knowledge about philanthropy in the U.S. and around the world is accomplished, in part, through the free information and grantseeker training offered to the public at our New York library/learning center. We've been serving the nonprofit community of New York since 1956.
