Library Offers Workshop on Grants for the Nonprofit Organization


    The University of Delaware Library invites staff and volunteers of nonprofit agencies to attend a workshop offered during the Spring 2009 semester on grant funding for nonprofit organizations.  The workshop will be held on Thursday, April 16, 2009, from 10:00 - 11:30 a.m. in the Class of 1941 Lecture Room in the Morris Library.

    The workshop will focus on using the Foundation Directory Online, a Library database that staff and volunteers of nonprofit agencies can use to identify sources for grant funding. The online database includes detailed information on funders such as private foundations, corporations and public charities.  The workshop will cover strategies for searching the database, locating additional grant information on the Internet, and using alerting services and RSS feeds.

    The workshop is open to the public, and there is no charge.  Registration is required, and seating is limited.  Interested individuals can register online at [www2.lib.udel.edu/usered/workshops/current.htm]. Questions can be sent via e-mail to [lib-workshops@udel.edu] or addressed by calling 302-831-2432.
