Wealth Engine access had been discontinued as of June 3rd. We apologize for the short notice. At this time, the Library does not have an alternative database for doing individual prospect research. However, Forefront (formerly Donors Forum) offers on-site access to both NOZA and Research Point in their library. For more information about what NOZA is, please see Forefront's tutorial at http://guides.myforefront.org/databasetutorials/NOZAandRP
Wealth Engine is unavailable for use until further notice. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Access to NOZA and Research Point, similar tools, is available at the Library of Forefront (formerly known as Donors Forum).
The Foundation Maps is data visualization tool based on the data found in the Foundation Center database. The mapping tool is an effective way to easily see who is funding what and where around the world.
Foundation Center introduces Foundation Landscapes: Education, a new online portal that serves as a hub of information about education philanthropy.
According to their latest press release, "this website draws dynamically from a variety of Foundation Center information resources to provide a central, comprehensive source for the most current education-related reports, news, case studies, funding data, and other digital content." Find research reports by topic, educational level or region.
Foundation Landscapes: Education can be accessed at education.foundationcenter.org; it is made possible through generous support from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations.
Stay current with trends, news and research by accessing our collection of nonprofit journals.

NEW! Foundation Maps
We are pleased to now offer a new online tool in our core collection. Foundation Maps is Foundation Center’s new interactive mapping tool that brings philanthropy data to life so you can see who is funding what and where. Some of the most exciting features include:
• Map View displays with colored bubbles for foundations and recipients.
• Charts show funding trends and allow comparisons of funding by subject areas over time.
• Funding pathways visually reveals networked relationships between funders and recipients. Start with a recipient or foundation and view multiple layers of funding.
• U.S. Demographic overlays add a rich dimension to the maps, demonstrating the need for funding in a region or subject area.
Next time you are in the Library, search your nonprofit and find out its “family tree” of funding.
Foundation Directory Online Professional has undergone a slight makeover. The new features do not affect the grantmaker profiles, just the initial search screens.
Here is a link to a handout provided by Foundation Center on how to use FDO.
I'm excited by the new options. Let me know if you have any questions.
