Foundation Center Honors New Mexico State Library

NMSL News:

SANTA FE ― The New Mexico State Library was recognized recently for 35+ years as a Foundation Center Funding Information Network partner. 

The State Library has been connecting New Mexicans to the grant resources the state needs to thrive since 1976. 

Foundation Center President Bradford K. Smith said in his letter:

“The successful growth of the Foundation Center’s reach and impact is the direct result of the New Mexico State Library, one of our valued network partners. The New Mexico State Library’s dedication and commitment serve as an inspiration to hundreds of other partners around the globe, our very own staff, and me personally.”

The Foundation Centre Funding Information Network concentrates on grant funding from private foundations for non-profit organizations and individuals. The Foundation Directory Online, Foundation Grants for Individuals Online, and Foundation Maps Professional databases are available for use in the State Library. 

Corresponding print Foundation Center directories are augmented with local publications when available, as well as information on corporate giving, non-profit management, fund-raising techniques and grant proposal writing. Information is also available on Federal and State grants. 

The Foundation Center Funding Information Network materials are part of the reference collection, but there are circulating copies of some popular materials available for check-out.

You may need to spend considerable time at the State Library with the Foundation Center Funding Information Network resources researching which foundations might be interested in funding your organization or project. The State Library reference staff can help you get started with your research.
