Grant seeking basics offered in Bealeton

In March the Bealeton Library is presenting a one-hour introductory overview of the funding research process for those seeking grants from foundations, corporations, and grant-making public charities.

Grant-seeking Basics - to be presented at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 13 in the Bealeton Depot - will introduce methods for identifying potential funders and becoming a more effective grant seeker. Although free, registration is required to attend the program. Please call or email Natalie Wheeler, (540) 422-8532, to register.

The Bealeton Library is designated as a cooperative collection of the Foundation Center — the nation's leading authority on philanthropy. The Foundation Center was established in 1956 and is now supported by more than 600 foundations. It connects nonprofits and the grant makers supporting them to tools they can use and information they can trust. The center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. grant makers and their grants. The cooperating collection helps individuals learn the basics of grant seeking and grant making, gathering information about grant proposals and proposal writing, finding detailed profiles for foundations and corporate givers, and exploring additional topics related to philanthropy and fundraising.
