Among the databases available at the Marathon County Public Library, FOUNDATIONS IN WISCONSIN is a first choice for grant writers seeking funding sources. This easy-to-search database offers up-to-date information on over 1,300 Wisconsin foundations.
The database offers various search keys including Foundation Name, Location, Keyword, Grants Divided by Amount Given, Foundation Officers/Directors, New Foundations and, most importantly, Area of Interest which indicate the prime purpose of the foundation. Some foundations, for instance, concentrate on grants related to Aging. Others emphasize grants on Alcohol and Drugs, Building, Children and Youth, Mental Health and so on.
FOUNDATIONS IN WISCONSIN can be accessed at all Marathon County Public Library locations. Library staff will provide the passwords needed to access the database.
FOUNDATIONS IN WISCONSIN includes a tutorial that explains how to use the database.
So, if you or your group is seeking funds, stop at an MCPL location and check out the FOUNDATIONS IN WISCONSIN database. It may have just the information you want to secure the funds you need!
