The Birmingham Public Library to Host "Foundation Center Resources for Nonprofits"
The Birmingham Public Library continues to seek innovative ways to assist the public. There are few resources that affect the local community more than the resources for nonprofit organizations available at the library. With this knowledge, BPL will host an hour and a half seminar titled “Foundation Center Resources for Nonprofits.”
The Foundation Center is the leading authority on connecting grant-seeking nonprofit organizations with philanthropic institutions. It provides organizations with tools they can use and information they can trust. Established in 1956, the Foundation Center supports a nationwide network of Cooperating Collections, such as the one at the Birmingham Public Library. These collections provide under-resourced populations with the tools and training needed to connect with those willing to provide funding for their endeavors.
The Cooperating Collection, located in the Government Documents Department at the Central Library, provides free public access to grantmaker directories, books on fundraising, and information on managing nonprofit organizations. Also, Government Documents offers free access to the Foundation Directory Online, which contains more than 99,000 profiles of grant makers, 1.6 million records of recently awarded grants, and much more. Trained staff members are available to help searchers make the best use of the collection’s resources.
Joanne Kepics, Regional Training Coordinator, Foundation Center in Atlanta, will give the special presentation at the seminar on March 1. She will explain how to find funders using the Foundation Directory Online database of the over 99,000 grantmakers and grants. She will also cover how to get the most out of the resources on the comprehensive Foundation Center web site. This program is free, but registration is required as space is limited.
To register, please contact the Government Documents Department, located on the 3rd floor of the Central Library’s Linn-Henley Building. Government Document’s telephone number is 205-226-3620 and its email is email@example.com. The department’s Cooperating Collection may be accessed at any time during the library’s regular business hours.
