Directories are great tools for finding new funding sources. Nonprofits and other grant seekers can find state and local foundation directories for 41 of the 50 states and for Washington, DC. As of late 2012, the nine states that do not have current or recent state-specific foundation directories are: Arkansas (AR), California (CA), Hawaii (HI), Mississippi (MS), New Jersey (NJ), New York (NY), North Carolina (NC), Rhode Island (RI), and West Virginia (WV).

 

The directories vary greatly in their coverage and content. Some are available in multiple formats; most, in one only. Out of 73 identified directories, 8 are PDF files, 19 are CD-ROMs, 29 are print compilations, and 17 are online databases.

 

This post covers the Northwestern States of Alaska (AK), Idaho (ID), Montana (MT), Oregon (OR), Washington (WA), and Wyoming (WY). Later posts will cover other regions in the United States of America.
