For more than 50 years, the Regional Foundation Library (RFL) has served as a bridge between the grant-seeking and the grant-making communities. Check out our Patron Spotlight!
The RFL contains core publications from The Foundation Center, the leading source of philanthropy information, as well as other major materials in fund development, grants, and nonprofit management. It provides free access to multiple Foundation Center online funding research tools.
The Library has one of the most extensive Foundation Directory archives in the United States and is the fifth-oldest Foundation Center Funding Information Network partner.
The library is a unit within the University of Texas at Austin’s Division of Diversity and Community Engagement (DDCE). It is located in the DDCE’s Community Engagement Center in East Austin. The RFL is also home to a rotating selection of art pieces from local art gallery La Peña.
In keeping with its original commitment to make information accessible to all, the RFL is open to everyone, free of charge.
