Grantseeking for Libraries

Funding sources for libraries is an important discussion for library staff, board members, and even the community at large. Finding and increasing funding from private sources allows libraries to better meet the needs of their communities. With the help of a self-paced course from Foundation Center, you can learn how to find and secure new financial support for your library.

The online course walks you through tips that highlight what you need to know to be successful when seeking grants. You’ll also learn how funding from grants can support library activities, the different types of foundations that make grants, and tips for approaching funders.

The course is now available through the WebJunction Course Catalog, which is always available, and always FREE. The course runs about one hour.
