- Are you an individual looking for funding?
The Foundation Center has listings of resources for individuals seeking funding for education, work related projects, personal assistance or business.
- Where can I find funding for personal expenses?

Those that give grants to individuals typically do so to help pay for education or to support artistic or research projects.
