Resource Spotlight: Foundation Center

Are you looking to start a new business but need some help with start-up funds? Maybe you're involved in a non-profit organization that needs money for a project. Or, you might be a student looking for help to finance a college education. You're in luck! Arlington Public Library (Central branch) is now a Cooperating Collection Network member of the Foundation Center! The Foundation Center provides access to the most up to date grant information through print resources and databases. The Central branch has two computers upstairs dedicated to the use of Foundation Center databases. Foundation Directory Online allows users to search for grants and grant makers. Foundation Grants to Individuals Online allows individuals to search for funding resources for purposes such as scholarships, internships, research, student loans, and general welfare. Much of this information is also available in print. Staff members can help you get started using databases to help ensure you get good results. Come check out this great resource (but remember, right now it is only available at the Central branch)!
