ECCF is pleased to announce the opening of the EBSCO Publishing Grants Resource Center at ECCF (GRC). In partnership with Associated Grant Makers and sponsored by EBSCO Publishing, the GRC is a valuable research database for nonprofits seeking new funding sources through regional, national and international granting foundations. The GRC is a portal located at Essex County Community Foundation in Danvers that provides access, free of charge, to two databases: AGM’s Grant Makers Directory which consists of in-depth data on 400 funders that grant in Massachusetts and New Hampshire and the Foundation Center’s Foundation Directory Online which includes over 100,000 foundations, corporate donors, and grant-making public charities.
The GRC portal opened on Tuesday, January 24, 2012. The first in the door was Brian Frykenburg of Friends of Andover Tennis Fund. He said, “It’s a valuable resource. I found three good leads that I will now pursue for new funding!”
The GRC at ECCF is available by appointment only Monday through Friday (except holidays) 10am - 5pm. Beginning in March, extended hours will be available one day per week until 7 pm and one Saturday per month from 9 am – 12 noon. Dates TBA. The GRC is available for nonprofit staff, grant writers, fund holders, foundation staff and development consultants. It is not available to for-profit businesses.
The GRC is part of ECCF’s Center for Nonprofit Excellence - a comprehensive set of educational offerings, services and resources designed to train and support nonprofit leadership. Learn more or sign-up for a GRC session.
