On Wednesday, January 29 the James V. Brown Library will offer an introduction to the powerful Foundation Directory Online Professional database.

This is an introduction to the information available in the library from the Foundation Center for representatives of nonprofit organizations. We will work through a number of examples of searches of the Foundation Center database to help grantseekers familiarize themselves with the searching power and flexibility of this database. In addition we will talk about other resources available online and in the library for non profits.

The James V. Brown Library is a member of the Funding Information Network of the Foundation Center. Network locations around the country offer access free of charge to the Center’s detailed information on grantmakers and how to apply for grants.

The Foundation Center’s core collection includes The Foundation Directory Online, profiling more than 96,000 U.S. grantmakers, Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, print directories, and proposal writing guides.

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.

Thousands of people visit the Center’s web site each day and are served in its five regional learning centers and its national network of Cooperating Collections.

The class will be held from 11 AM to 12:30 PM in the Lowry Room on the third floor of the Welch Wing. The class is free of charge, but space is limited and registration is requested. Feel free to bring a brown bag lunch.

The January class will be followed by Proposal Writing Basics, to be held on Wednesday February 26 at noon.
