Introduction to Finding Grants Workshop

Eastern Shore Public Library will host a free workshop on grantseeking basics for nonprofit organizations on Wednesday, January 31, from 1:00 to 2:30 pm at Eastern Shore Community College.  Introduction to Finding Grants will be led by Library Director Cara Burton and will provide an overview of the funding research process for nonprofits seeking grants from foundations, corporations, and grantmaking public charities.

Burton will offer tips on how best to identify funding sources for your nonprofit organization, highlighting the electronic and print resources available for free at the Accomac library.  This workshop will include a demonstration of Foundation Directory Online, Foundation Center’s premiere searchable database that provides information on more than 140,000 grantmakers and over 5 million grant records.

This workshop and access to the Foundation Directory is made possible by support from Eastern Shore Public Library, Eastern Shore of Virginia Community Foundation, United Way of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Eastern Shore Community College Foundation, and Eastern Shore of Virginia Chamber of Commerce
