NEW in 2024! CharityEZ

Marquette University has partnered with a new public charity, CharityEZ, Inc., to develop a new database for finding funding information. This new online funding search portal, called CharityEZ, not only includes the same up-to-date information that you were accustomed to in the Foundations in Wisconsin service, it also offers simple access to a vast pool of federal data on philanthropies and philanthropists in Wisconsin and across the US.

As long as the library only allows users to access the database on-site at the library and does not give users the sign-in and password, then CharityEZ will remain free for libraries starting in 2024 and beyond.

To set up access to CharitzEZ at your library:

  1. Each library should create one account per location at www.charityez.org
  2. After they do so, they will receive an email from CharityEZ requesting that they provide documentation that they are a nonprofit organization
  3. The library will then upload their tax-exempt certificate (or comparable document) to their account on charityez.org per the directions in the email
  4. CharityEZ will then approve the account and notify the library of approval via email
  5. Once their account is approved, libraries can create a “read only” account for their patrons. Please follow the directions below to do so:
  6. Click the “Users” icon
  7. Select “Add User”
  8. Name the user “Public” or “Library Users” or something similar
  9. Assign that user “read only” permission level
