West Virginia University Libraries will host a free workshop on grant-seeking basics for nonprofit organizations on Nov. 19 from 9-11 a.m., in Room 136, Downtown Campus Library.

“Introduction to Grant Seeking” 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 grant making 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 grant makers and more than 3 million grant records.

Please register by email at ppugh@wvu.edu or by phone at 304-293-0337.
