We are a member of the Foundation Center’s Cooperating Collections Network. The Foundation Center is the nation’s leading authority on organized philanthropy and serves grantseekers, grantmakers, and the general public. Our Cooperating Collection is made possible by the generous support of the Douglas County Community Foundation.
In addition to reference books and circulating titles, we provide access to three powerful tools:
- Foundation Directory Online -Searchable database of over 100,000 grantmakers. Available in the library on our public computers, on your laptop via our wireless network, or on your mobile device, using this app.
- Foundation Grants to Individuals Online – Geared toward individuals and small organizations, includes over 7,700 foundations and public charity programs. Available in the library on our public computers or on your laptop via our wireless network.
- Philanthropy In/Sight – Uses aggregated data and demographic maps to reveal patterns of foundation giving and funding relationships. Available in the library on our public computers or on your laptop via our wireless network.
We also provide occasional workshops and training sessions on using Foundation Center materials. If you want to learn about these opportunities and additions to the collection, sign up for our Grants Connection e-newsletter by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org If you need more information or help getting started, please call the Reference Desk at 785-843-1178 or email Joanne King at email@example.com
