Looking for a little Keats or Whitman with your morning coffee? World of Poetry has a Listening Room where you can hear your favorite poems read out loud! Check out this database today – simply go to our Digital Library, find it in the A-Z list, and log in with your library card.

The Foundation Center Funding Information Network

October 23, 2013

The River Center Branch Library houses a specialized Grants Resource Center that serves as a Funding Information Network partner of the Foundation Center. Called Cooperating Collections until October 2013, Funding Information Network (FIN) partners serve nonprofits by funding information about grantmakers, offering training and programs related to fundraising and nonprofit management, and actively reaching out to underserved organizations within their community to connect them to these key resources. Network partners also provide resources for artists and students. The Foundation Center program manager Katie Artzner recently remarked that the new name of Funding Information Network partners “now accurately captures how our partner organizations function as a network, and it also reflects more concretely the types of resources and services they provide.”


Head over to the River Center Branch Library and take advantage of these free services or call (225) 389-4964 for more information.

Check out our Grants InfoGuide for more on the resources related to grant-writing and nonprofits available at the library, including online education courses and library databases. Our Learn4Life online learning database offers several courses on nonprofit management and grant-writing, including A to Z Grant Writing, Get Grants!, and Nonprofit Fundraising Essentials. And don’t forget to check the library catalog for a wealth of books on grant-writing and nonprofits.
