Foundation Center Cooperating Collection

Grants Research

PURPOSE

The Anne Arundel County Public Library is a cooperating collection of the national Foundation Center. Our collection contains print and electronic information on potential funding from foundations, corporations, the public sector and other sources for nonprofit organizations and individuals. Collection materials also include guides on grantseeking, proposal writing, and other means of fund raising, and texts on nonprofit management/board leadership and giving, voluntarism/volunteerism and civil society.

HOURS

Access to the Foundation Center Collection and Databases, both at the Annapolis Regional Library, is available during regular library hours.

RESOURCES

The cooperating collection maintains a current and comprehensive set of reference publications and other aids. These materials are available for use in the library. The circulating library collection also includes materials that support our cooperating collection.
