TCPLS is a Funding Information Network of the Foundation Center.
The Funding Information Network is a network of libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit resource centers that can be found across the U.S. and around the world. Network partners provide a suite of tools and resources consisting of Foundation Center databases, publications and a variety of supplementary materials and services in areas useful to grantseekers.
A key initiative of Foundation Center is to reach under-resourced and underserved populations throughout the United States and in other locations around the globe, who are in need of useful information and training to become successful grantseekers. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by designating new Funding Information Network partners in regions that have the ability to serve the nonprofit communities most in need of Foundation Center resources.
We are seeking proposals from qualified institutions (e.g. public, academic or special libraries, nonprofit resource centers, centers for innovation, community foundations, United Ways, etc.) that can help us carry out this important initiative.
The Funding Information Network, is located in the Reference Department of the Thomasville Library, is available anytime the library is open. Appointments are suggested for those who wish to have an in-depth orientation to the collection and its uses. Contact the Reference Department at 229-225-5252 for more information.
We offer free classes on using the Foundation Center resources. The free hands-on training (must be familiar with computers) is designed to help you search for grants using the Foundation Directory online. Registration is required and seating is limited. Contact Perida Mitchell to register for the class or call 229-225-5252.
