Parasol is committed to empowering non-profit organizations in becoming effective and sustainable. We look to provide educational and other resources that allow organizations to accomplish just that.
Parasol provides grant research and educational opportunities to individuals and non-profit organizations through the Foundation Center's Funding Information Network, located in Parasol's Smallwood Collaboration Resource Center. In addition to an extensive electronic grant research database, printed materials from the Foundation Center's core collection as well as other print and media resources are available.
Foundation Center Funding Information Network
The Foundation Center is the leading source of information regarding philanthropy worldwide. Through data, analysis, and training, it connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to succeed. The Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global grantmakers and their grants. It also operates research, education, and training programs designed to advance knowledge of philanthropy.
