Funding Information Network

The Iredell County Public Library is a member of the Foundation Center Funding Information Network. Through a collaboration with United Way of Iredell County, the library provides community organizations, nonprofits and individuals access to thousands of sources for grant opportunities. In a recent survey of Foundation Center customers working in fundraising, 60% of those who have actually received a grant in the past 2 years stated that Funding Information Network resources were an important reason for their success.

For information on the Funding Information Network, contact Mardi Durham at 704-878-3090 x3109 or
