Q. Does the library have a resource for locating grants for nonprofit organizations?
Huntsville-Madison County Public Library is a Cooperating Collection for the Foundation Center. Supported by close to 550 foundations, the Foundation Center is the leading source of information about philanthropy worldwide. Through data, analysis, and training, it connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to succeed. The Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global grantmakers and their grants — a robust, accessible knowledge bank for the sector (from the website).
The Main Library provides access to several of their books as well as three databases for researching grant opportunities and foundations. The Foundation Directory Online allows grantseekers to quickly research prospective funders by providing access to detailed information on grantmakers, grants, and grant recipients.
This database is only accessible at the Main Library. It is also limited to three simultaneous users. Please visit the Reference Department on the Second Floor to use this database. Ask a Reference Librarian for assistance.
