Funding workshop for nonprofits planned

Fauquier County Public Library is hosting a free one-hour workshop to help nonprofit organizations learn how to effectively use resources provided by the Foundation Center, the nation's leading authority on philanthropy. These resources are available at the Bealeton Library.

The 9 a.m. workshop will be presented twice at the Bealeton Library: Wednesday, March 18, and Wednesday, March 25. Registration is required; contact Natalie Swart, (540) 439-9728, to reserve a space.

The Foundation Center maintains the most comprehensive database available on U.S. grant makers and their grants. It is supported by nearly 600 foundations and is designed to connect nonprofits with grant makers and provide tools and information they can trust. The center, established in 1956, provides valuable training and strategies for successfully securing grants. Details on grant providers and grant application guidelines are notable features of the Bealeton Library’s Foundation Center collection.
