Olson, Stan, Ed.; Kovacs, Ruth, Ed.
This guide includes entries for 2,905 foundations and is intended to aid grant-seekers looking for foundation support of higher education. The foundations included hold assets of $1 million or more or give at least $100,000 annually and have expressed a substantial interest in higher education. Preliminary information includes a discussion of the various types of foundations, suggestions for using the guide, a listing of Founding Center cooperating collections network members, a higher education bibliography of about 100 items, and a bibliography of state and local foundation directories. Organized by state, entries typically include the following information: name, address, and phone number; establishment data; donor/s; financial data; purpose and activities; types of support; limitations; publications; application information; officers and trustees; staff data; and a listing of recent higher education grants. There are four indexes: the index to donors, officers, and trustees; the geographic index, the types of support index, and the foundation name index. (DB)
