Use Our Library

Gain knowledge about grantmakers, their grants, and all aspects of fundraising, philanthropy, and nonprofit management. We invite you to use our library where you can search for prospective foundation funders using Foundation Directory Online Professional free of charge, along with our growing collection of books, periodicals, and other print and electronic resources.

New Acquisitions

New materials are always being added to the library and a sampling of the most recent additions can be found in the following list. To find more materials from the Atlanta library, search the Catalog of Nonprofit Literature.

Lending Program

This free service allows visitors to borrow up to two items for two weeks from our lending collection of more than 2,000 books and videos on fundraising and nonprofit management. Please note that while this service is provided free of charge, borrowers will be charged a replacement fee for unreturned items.

Our lending policies:

  • Only items with a round orange sticker and check mark may be borrowed. Other items may be used in the library during regular hours.
  • Individuals must submit a completed and signed Borrower's Registration Form and present valid photo identification with proof of address before they will be allowed to check out items.
  • Borrowers must present valid photo ID and a valid credit or debit card at time of checkout. If you cannot provide a valid credit or debit card, we will accept a check or cash deposit for the total list price of the borrowed items plus a $10 processing fee.
  • Borrowers may return items by coming to the Center during business hours, placing items in our blue drop box outside the office door after hours, or by mailing items to the library at the borrower's expense.
  • If the borrower does not return items within two weeks of their due date, he/she will forfeit the collateral posted (i.e. their credit/debit card will be charged or check or cash deposited). Replacement charges for unreturned items are non-refundable.
  • Borrowers with unpaid replacement charges will be denied borrowing privileges until all items are returned or all fees are paid.
Please see our Borrower's Registration Form for full details about how this program works.
