Nonprofit organizations and other grant seekers in Greater Bridgeport looking for funding sources now have access to a valuable new collection of resources at the Bridgeport Public Library, which has become a Funding Information Network partner with the Foundation Center of New York.
Funding Information Network partners provide under-resourced and undeserved populations in need of vital information and training with tools they can use to become successful grant seekers. Located throughout the country and around the world, Funding Information Network partners offer free access to the Foundation Center’s detailed information on grant makers and applying for grants. The Center’s core collection of resources includes Foundation Directory Online, profiling more than 110,000 U.S. grant makers, Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, Philanthropy In/Sight, print directories, and proposal writing guides. Funding Information Network locations also hold training sessions on how to effectively use these resources and identify potential funders.

Established in 1956, the Foundation Center is the nation’s leading authority on organized philanthropy, serving grant seekers, grant makers, researchers, policymakers, the media, and the general public. Thousands of people visit the Center’s web site each day and are served in its five regional learning centers and its international partnerships with hundreds of Funding Information Network locations.
