The Foundation Center launched on October 5, 2010. This website places information about grants and fundraising within reach of organizations of all sizes, providing the grant seeker with a one-stop shop for knowledge, community and expert guidance. GrantSpace compliments the Foundation Center with recent news, reports, documents, etc. that relates to the most pressing social change issues of the day. There are links to FAQ’s as well as a calendar that lists and allows registration for upcoming Foundation Center training opportunities around the U.S. and online.

GrantSpace has an assortment of tools and resources designed to get you up to speed on what you will need to finance and operate a nonprofit organization.

Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact (TRASI) is another new resource on the Foundation Center database. This database has guidelines for creating and conducting an assessment and ready to use tools for measuring social change. TRASI is a partnership project with the Foundation Center and McKinsey & Co. and with experts in the field to address the growing interest in measuring social impact.
