FOUNDATION CENTER: knowledge to build on
Nonprofit organizations and other grantseekers in Washington County looking for funding sources will soon have access to a valualble new collection of resources at Citizens Library which will become a Cooperating Collection of the Foundation Center of New York.
Cooperating Collections provide under-resourced populations in need of vital information and training with tools they can use to become successful grantseekers.
The Foundation Center's core collection includes The Foundation Directory Online (available on site at Citizens Library), profiling more than 91,000 U.S. grantmakers, Foundation Grants to Individuals Online (available on site at Citizens Library), print directories, and proposal writing guides. Cooperating Collections also hold training sessions on the effective use of these resources and how to identify potential funders.
Established in 1956, the Foundation Center is the nation's leading authority on organized philanthropy, serving grantseekers, grantmakers, researchers, policymakers, the media, and the general public.
