"Grant-Searching" Resources in LA County

There are many resources for heritage non-profits and other grant seekers related to funding, but many of those sources of information cost money.

To that end, The Foundation Center offers Core Collections, which are free funding information centers in libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit resource centers that provide a core collection of Foundation Center publications and a variety of supplementary materials and services in areas useful to grantseekers, including the following electronic resources:
-The Foundation Directory Online Professional
-Foundation Grants to Individuals Online

In LA County, the following locations serve as Core Collection centers with these valuable tools:
-Center For Nonprofit Management
-Flintridge Foundation
-Los Angeles Public Library, Mid-Valley Regional Branch
-Los Angeles Public Library, San Pedro Regional Branch
-Santa Monica Public Library
-Southern California Library for Social Studies and Research

Details on these sites can be found at the Los Angeles Public Library site here.

Other grant seeking resources can be found on the Library's site here or on the resources panel at the right column of this site.
