The Foundation Center has added a new online community to its portfolio- Grantspace. Launched in October 2010 GrantSpace places the best information about grants and fundraising within reach of organizations of all sizes, providing grantseekers with a one-stop shop for knowledge, community, and expert guidance.
GrantSpaceSM is the place for grantseekers to:
- EXPLORE in-depth content
- ENGAGE with a community of peers and experts
- ENERGIZE your fundraising efforts
Complementing the resources on the Foundation Center’s main site, foundationcenter.org, GrantSpace gathers, on a single convenient platform, recent news, reports, podcasts, videos, statistics, sample documents, and requests for proposals related to the most pressing social change issues of the day. Links to relevant FAQs are included throughout the site, and an “Ask Us” link on each page connects visitors to expert assistance from Foundation Center staff via live chat or e-mail. The site also offers a comprehensive calendar that lists and allows registration for upcoming Foundation Center training opportunities in classrooms around the U.S. as well as online.
GrantSpace’s user-focused assortment of tools and resources is designed to get you up-to-speed on all it takes to finance and operate a nonprofit organization.
There is a great incentive for registering (it’s free by the way)- new members get a free 24-hour subscription to the Foundation Directory Online Professional, the center’s searchable database of nearly 100,000 grantmakers and more than two million grants.
