Western New York Grantmakers announces new partnership with the
Buffalo & Erie County Public Library!
For many years WNY Grantmakers provided a directory of local funders and their contact information. Although helpful, the information was outdated quickly, and did not provide the level of detail many nonprofits were looking for.
WNYGA and the Buffalo & Erie County Public Library have teamed up to provide Foundation Directory Online - the nation's most popular grantseeking resource for nonprofits and consultants. With four comprehensive databases (grantmakers, companies, grants and IRS 990's), FDO Professional is updated weekly with interacive maps and charts showing a foundation's giving priorities. This cutting edge program has access to over 8,000 funders - including grants to individuals. This would be ideal not only for nonprofits, but also students, artists and researchers.
How do I access this service?
Not from your desktop - but by visiting one of the following libraries:
