News and Events, OneSource Center News

On Wednesday, April 1 at 1:30 p.m. OneSource Center for Nonprofit Excellence and The Public Library of Cincinnati’s Grants Resource Center staff are collaborating 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 will be providing  this specialized training on use of The Foundation Directory Online.  For best usage, it is best to get training before using this tool.                  

NOTE:  A video link for the training is located here.  A handout created for this special training is available here.    The Foundation Center’s Subject Terms document is here. 

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 will be able to pinpoint prospective funders, and visitors to the site can explore comprehensive databases plus do research based on their organization’s needs. 

Additional funding tools are available through the Public Library of Cincinnati’s Information and Reference Department including the library’s Sites by Subject directory with URLs for websites on fundraising, philanthropy news, nonprofit development and more.  There are also Reading Recommendations for books on fundraising, proposal writing and nonprofit administration.
