This summer, the library is making it easier for you to find funding for your endeavors. Whether you need monies to sponsor a program or grants to fund research, The Foundation Center by Candid is here to help! Candid connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to do it.
UDC is a Funding Information Network partner of Candid. The Funding Information Network is comprised of libraries, community foundations, NGOs, and nonprofit resource centers across the country and around the world. As a Funding Information Network partner, UDC provides free access to the most comprehensive information available on foundation and corporate giving. It features print and electronic resources as well as professional staff to assist visitors. Foundation Center electronic resources include, Foundation Directory Online, Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, and Foundation Maps.
You can access these databases any time you’re on campus.
To make using these resources easier, UDC has paired up with Candid staff to provide on campus training and appointments. Their staff will be in the library on the second Thursday of every month from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can schedule a one-on-one meeting with Candid staff using our online scheduler. If you’re pressed for time, you can also drop-in to see Candid staff on these days as well. As always, UDC librarians are here to guide you through these databases whenever you need help.
Finally, keep an eye out for specialized FREE trainings from Candid which will be held on campus in the fall. Future trainings include Introduction to Proposal Writing, Introduction to Finding Grants, and Introduction to Fundraising Planning.
