Foundation Directory Training for Grant Research


OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence and The Public Library of Cincinnati’s Grants Resource Center staff collaborated on April 1, 2020 to provide regional  nonprofits with remote training AND online access to nonprofit funding opportunities, normally only available with in-person library access.  Grants Librarian Kent Mulcahy provided  specialized training on use of The Foundation Directory Online.  For best usage, it is best to get training before using this tool.    

The Foundation Directory Online provides access to essential facts on grantmakers and their funding activities and is normally only available when visiting the Cincinnati library.  Through this special provision, users can pinpoint prospective funders, and visitors to the site can explore comprehensive databases plus do research based on their organization’s needs.
