Explore databases to identify potential funders in UD Library workshop

Whether you are a researcher or nonprofit organization, acquiring funding is hard work. To maximize your efforts, it is crucial to identify and approach the appropriate potential funders.

This semester, the University of Delaware Library, Museums and Press (https://library.udel.edu/) is hosting “Grants for Nonprofit Organizations,” which is open to UD students, faculty and staff, as well as the general public.

During the workshop, you’ll become more familiar with what criteria to consider when identifying potential funders and learn how to successfully search specialized databases to locate those funders. Once you have identified potential funding organizations in these databases, you can study them more carefully by looking at their websites, publications, newspaper articles and tax returns.

The workshop will focus on two Library databases—Foundation Directory Online and COS Pivot.

The featured databases are just a few of many Library databases that can help administrators and volunteers at nonprofit agencies search for funding sources, including grants from private foundations, corporations and public charities.

Carol Rudisell, librarian, Reference and Instructional Services Department, will lead the workshop.

This workshop will be held Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in Room 116A of Morris Library. If you would like to attend, please register here (http://udel.libcal.com/event/3463817).

While workshops are free of charge, registration is required as seating is limited.

All Morris Library visitors need photo identification to enter. Visitors with UD ONEcards can use those at the turnstiles for easy access to the Library. If you do not have a UD ONEcard, you will need a state-issued ID (a driver’s license, a government-issued or school-issued photo ID, etc.) to enter.

Please call 302-831-2432 or email lib-workshops@udel.edu with questions regarding workshops.
