West Virginia University’s Downtown Campus Library is offering a new service for nonprofit groups and social services agencies seeking grants to serve their communities.
The Downtown Campus Library recently became a Cooperating Collection of the Foundation Center of New York. In this new role, the Library will serve as a hub for the Foundation Center’s resources and provide access to detailed information on grantmakers and how to apply for grants.
These materials are open for use by individuals from nonprofits and social service agencies, along with those in the University community.
“The WVU Libraries are excited to join the network of Cooperating Collections,” Penny Pugh, Head of Reference, said. “With looming federal and state budget cuts, the role of philanthropy has never been more important. These resources will better equip nonprofits and social service agencies to secure financial support for crucial programs that serve the people of West Virginia.”
