About the Foundation Center-Atlanta

Welcome to the Foundation Center-Atlanta, one of five library/learning centers operated by the Foundation Center, a national nonprofit organization headquartered in New York. The Center's mission to strengthen the social sector by advancing knowledge about philanthropy in the U.S. and around the world is accomplished in part through the free information and grantseeker training offered to the public at our Atlanta library/learning center. We've been serving the nonprofit community of Georgia and the Southeast since 1994.

About InwardBound Center for Nonprofit Leadership

The InwardBound Center for Nonprofit Leadership envisions a day when nonprofits focused on eliminating poverty are ranked among the Best Places to Work, known for their outstanding leadership and success in achieving their mission. The Center brings the world’s finest leadership programs, in particular Coaching, to these nonprofit leaders and their teams.

About Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership

The Greenleaf Center for Servant Leadership advances the awareness, understanding and practice of servant leadership in students, workplaces and the larger community. Through collaborative and inclusive programming, the Center helps people develop a new leadership model using their natural desire to serve others. Our workplace consulting work, conferences and new student-focused initiatives make servant leadership more than an academic subject. To discover ways to make servant leadership personal to you, the Center invites you to attend its 24th Annual International Conference in Atlanta, GA, September 24-26, 2014!

To learn more about Greenleaf’s work, please visit their website at www.greenleaf.org or email info@greenleaf.org

In 1994, members of the Atlanta community were asked to serve on an advisory committee to ensure that the new library was responsive to the needs and interests of the community.
