Funding Research Resources


Foundation Center’s Funding Information Network
As Funding Information Network partners, EPNRC and the Estes Valley Library provide grantseekers free access to a collection of Foundation Center electronic and print resources, and fundraising research guidance.

No appointment is necessary, and no fee is charged for use of Foundation Center resources. The resources are valued at over $5,000.

The following resources are available from public computers at the Estes Valley Library, 335 E. Elkhorn Avenue:
