Our mission is to connect, empower and cultivate a vibrant Transylvania County.  We held a mini-workshop on Wednesday, August 16th in partnership with United Way of Transylvania County’s TRAIN program to demonstrate the Foundation Directory Online — a great tool for finding grants and funders for non-profit organizations.  The Library is a part of the Foundation Center’s Funding Information Network which includes access to the Foundation Directory Online (FDO), Foundation Maps, and Grants to Individuals Online (GTIO) — all tools for searching grants, scholarships, and awards.  Participants got an overview of the resources, hands on practice using them, and tips on applying for grants.  Read all about these resources HERE.  Questions?  Just ask us, we’ll be happy to help!  This is part of our effort to GET THE WORD OUT!
