Foundation Center Cooperating Collection
Cooperating Collections are free funding information centers in libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit resource centers that provide a core collection of Foundation Center publications and a variety of supplementary materials and services in areas useful to grantseekers.
Participants in the Foundation Center's Cooperating Collections network are libraries or nonprofit information centers that provide fundraising information and other funding-related technical assistance in their communities. Cooperating Collections agree to provide free public access to a basic collection of Foundation Center publications during a regular schedule of hours, offering free funding research guidance to all visitors.
The Foundation Center Cooperating Collection, located in the EDIC Department of the Flagstaff City/Coconino County Public Library, is one of more than 425 similar reference collections affiliated with the Foundation Center whose central office is located in New York City. It is a specialized collection of research materials designed to aid organizations or institutions in locating potential sources of funding, in particular, grants from foundations. The Foundation Center has an excellent World Wide Web site (http://www.fdncenter.org), which provides a good orientation to the Foundation Center products and services, and serves as a gateway to Internet resources related to foundations and grants.
