About the Nonprofit & Philanthropy Resource Center
The Nonprofit & Philanthropy Resource Center, located at the Redmond Library, serves the entire King County Library System. This collection is comprised of information on such topics as nonprofit organizations, fundraising and philanthropy.
The Foundation Center has granted the King County Library System status as a “Cooperating Collection” in their national “Cooperating Collections Network.” This Network provides information on private philanthropic giving to the grantseeking public. We provide free access to their database, Foundation Directory Online Professional (FDO Professional), on three dedicated computers. The database includes over 100,000 foundations and corporate giving programs, 650,000 IRS 990s that are fully searchable and more than 2 million grants. The database is updated weekly. Results can be printed, saved to a flash drive or, in many cases e-mailed. We also provide free access to several other databases: Philanthropy Northwest's Northwest Funders Directory, GrantStation, NOZA and The Foundation Center's Celebrity Foundation Directory. Appointments can be made to learn how to use the grants databases.
This Web site offers more than 200 links to Web sites dealing with nonprofit and fundraising topics In addition, the Nonprofit Calendar posts meetings, workshops, seminars and conferences on any nonprofit or fundraising topic that takes place in Western Washington.
The Redmond Library provides study areas and 62 PC workstations that have Internet connections, Microsoft Office software and the King County Library System catalog. The KCLS catalog provides access to more than 2.4 million items in the System. The Redmond Library has information to help you research projects of interest to nonprofit organizations.
