WVU Libraries will host a free workshop on grantseeking basics for nonprofit organizations on November 19, 2013, from 9-11 a.m., in Room 136, Downtown Campus Library.

“Introduction to Grantseeking” will be led by Penny Pugh and Alyssa Wright and will provide an overview of the funding research process for nonprofits seeking grants from foundations, corporations, and grantmaking public charities.

Participants will learn how best to identify funding sources for their nonprofit organizations, using the electronic and print resources available for free at WVU’s Downtown Campus Library.   The workshop will include a demonstration and hands-on practice with the Foundation Directory Online, the Foundation Center’s premiere searchable database that provides information on more than 110,000 grantmakers and more than 3 million grant records.
