2005 Edition of Foundations
in Wisconsin: A Directory Now Available
Oct. 17, 2005
Marquette University Libraries' Funding
Information Center has published its 2005 edition of Foundations
in Wisconsin: A Directory. Since 1975, Foundations
in Wisconsin has been the leading publication for researching
Wisconsin-based private and community foundations.
Now in its 24th edition, this unique resource is available
in two formats: spiral-bound paper and a Web-based subscription.
The online directory,
with its custom-designed searchware, is an unrivaled tool
for identifying potential Wisconsin funding sources. Both
print and online formats of Foundations in Wisconsin may be
purchased through the Funding
Information Center, located in Marquette University's
John P. Raynor, S.J., Library.
The 2005 edition documents the significant economic rebound
and growth of Wisconsin foundations as the number of active
grant making foundations has risen to an all-time high.
The collected data show that foundations in ten counties account
for 88% of the total giving by Wisconsin foundations. Once
again, Milwaukee County tops the list with 29% of the total
number of foundations and 47% of the total grant making. The
directory also includes a list of the state's fifty largest
granting foundations, collectively representing 66% of the
total grants, or over $260 million.
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.
