About the Funding Information Network

Network Days 2015 session, Kate Tkacik

Network partners provide local nonprofit communities with access to Foundation Center funding databases, nonprofit trainings, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded social sector professionals. 

A key initiative of Foundation Center is to reach under-resourced and underserved populations throughout the United States and in other locations around the globe, who are in need of useful information and training to become successful grantseekers. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by designating new Funding Information Network partners in regions that have the ability to serve the nonprofit communities most in need of Foundation Center resources.

We are seeking proposals from qualified institutions (e.g. public, academic or special libraries, nonprofit resource centers, centers for innovation, community foundations, United Ways, etc.) that can help us carry out this important initiative.
