Training for Non Profits at the Library
Regional Training Coordinator, David Holmes, will give a presentation on Finding Funding for Non Profits. Holmes will join us at the Downtown Rapid City Public Library on Monday, May 14 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
This session provides an introduction to the Foundation Center’s comprehensive online database, Foundation Directory Online Professional. Learn how to create customized searches to develop targeted lists of foundations that will match your organization’s funding needs. We will spend time exploring Power Search, which allows you to search across nine Foundation Center databases – grantmakers, grants, companies, 990s, news, jobs, RFPs, nonprofit literature, and PubHub reports. This session will also introduce you to the free resources available on the Foundation Center’s newest web site for grantseekers, GrantSpace.org.
Holmes has provided training and research assistance for the Foundation Center since February 2005. He was previously employed as a Program Officer for the Stocker Foundation in Lorain, Ohio, and as the Director of Grants and Prospect Research at Notre Dame College in South Euclid, Ohio.
This program will be held upstairs at the downtown library located at 610 Quincy St. There is no charge to attend and all are welcome.
