Library Grant Resources Still Available While Downtown Location Renovated

Grant resources continue to be available to all nonprofits in our region through the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library’s Grant Resource Center! Through COVID, Kent Mulcahy and the grant resource team have made adjustments to accommodate nonprofit leaders, and this adaptability continues even now in the midst of the downtown library’s major renovation. According to Mulcahy, the Foundation Directory Online database is still available for use at the main downtown library — but only through appointment due to construction restrictions. A change (starting immediately) is that Mulcahy will also be available to meet customers in-person at any of the library’s 41 locations to sign them on to the database.

If you would like to access the Foundation Directory Online database from a branch location, contact Mulcahy at  or by phone 513.369.6934 to set up an appointment. (Note: A side benefit is that all branches have free parking and are easily accessible via public transportation!)

Need outside assistance — even with all the accommodations being made by the library?  OneSource Center consultants can provide grant research capabilities through our consulting practice.  Just contact Vickie Ciotti at OneSource Center for more details.
