Nonprofit organizations and other grantseekers in the Greater New Milford area looking for funding sources now have access to a new collection of resources at New Milford Public Library.
The library has become a Funding Information Network partner with the Foundation Center of New York.
Funding Information Network partners provide under-resourced and underserved populations in need of vital information and training with tools they can use to become successful grantseekers.
Located worldwide, Funding Information Network partners offer free access to the foundation center’s detailed information on grantmakers and applying for grants.
The center’s core collection of resources includes Foundation Directory Online, profiling more than 110,000 U.S. grantmakers, Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, Foundation Maps, print directories, and proposal writing guides.
Funding Information Network locations also hold training sessions on how to effectively use these resources and identify potential funders.
Established in 1956, Foundation Center is the nation’s leading authority on organized philanthropy, serving grantseekers, grantmakers, researchers, policymakers, the media, and the general public. Thousands of people visit the center’s website each day and are served in its five regional learning centers and its international partnerships with hundreds of Funding Information Network locations.
