About the Foundation Center-Washington, DC

Welcome to the Foundation Center-Washington, DC, one of five library/learning centers operated by the Foundation Center, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. The Center's mission to strengthen the nonprofit sector by advancing knowledge about U.S. philanthropy is accomplished in part through the free information and grantseeker training offered to the public at our Washington, DC library/learning center. We've been serving the nonprofit community of Washington, DC since 1964.
