Are you trying to get a grant for your nonprofit? Do you want to set up a grant to support your community? Are you just curious about how the grants process works? The East Baton Rouge Library is the place to go – specifically, the River Center Branch! In addition to being a Funding Information Network partner of the Foundation Center, one of the largest philanthropic information centers in the world, the River Center Branch has access to resources on grants and grant-writing for both nonprofits and for-profit businesses.
With the Foundation Center, you can learn everything you need to know about grants and grantwriting with free training and online classes. Access their collected information on how causes of all kinds are funded, or use their directories to identify potential funding sources.
When you’re ready to start fundraising, research potential donors with iWave! iWave has lots of information on prospective donors, including what causes they’ve contributed to in the past, how often they’ve done so, and how much they’ve donated. You’ll learn who to ask, how much to ask for, and get an idea of the best way to approach.
Whether you are a grantseeker, grantmaker, or just curious about the grants process, we can help you meet your grants-related information needs. Check out our Grants Infoguide for more information, or contact our grants librarian at (225) 389-4964 to learn more!
