Nonprofits and individuals looking for new granting opportunities now have access to a wealth of useful resources at the Bud Werner Memorial Library.  To kick off the Funding Information Network returning to Northwest Colorado, the Yampa Valley Community Foundation and the Bud Werner Memorial Library co-hosted a training on how local nonprofit can access information on grants and grantmakers in the U.S. and around the world.

Over 40 nonprofits attended the training and are ready to start to find new funding opportunities for their organization.

To offer the training,  both John Major, Reference Librarian at the Bud Werner Memorial Library and Helen Beall, Community Impact Manager at YVCF had to complete two certifications:

  • FDO Trainer Certification –  to support new users look to master FDO to achieve fundraising goals
  • FDO Expert Certification –  to prospect research professionals upon completion of online courses

If you have questions on how to use the program, please contact John or Helen and we would love to help guide you to find your next funder!
