Marquette University News Release

2008 Foundations in Wisconsin directory now available

October 31, 2008

Marquette University’s Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Funding Information Center has published the 2008 edition of Foundations in Wisconsin: A Directory. Now in its 27th edition, the directory includes an all-time high 1,275 foundations responsible for almost $475 million in grants. The unique resource, which includes up-to-date data on private, corporate and community foundations, is available in two formats: spiral-bound paper and a Web-based subscription.

The online directory, with its custom-designed search engine, is a helpful tool for identifying potential Wisconsin funding sources. Both print and online formats of the directory may be purchased through the Funding Information Center, located in Marquette University’s John P. Raynor, S.J., Library.

Foundations in Wisconsin profiles include street and Web addresses, telephone/fax numbers, contact person, officers and directors, donors, financial information, purpose statement, application information, geographic focus, sample grants, and grant-making interests. The print format is enhanced by three indexes: area of interest, county, and officers. The online directory allows searching by keyword, foundation name, officers, donors, city and county, areas of interest, and sample grants.

For purchase information, please call the Funding Information Center at (414) 288-1515 or see the complete price structure, order form, and license agreement online at
