Grant Resource Networks
Nonprofit organizations in the Greater Boston area have many options to choose from in accessing grant seeking information, but beyond Boston it is often difficult. In order to extend some of the services for nonprofit organizations to different parts of our region, AGM has developed a Grants Resource Network. The GRN alleviates this problem by bringing key resources and training to underserved areas in Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
AGM’s Grant Resource Network partners with existing organizations, nonprofit centers and public libraries to increase access to grantseeking information across the state. Each site develops its own set of resources which might include workshops for grant seekers, access to grant maker databases such as AGM Grant Maker Directory and Foundation Center Online directory, and tools including publications and other resources. Please contact the site listed below for more information about what services and support is provided.
The EBSCO Publishing Grants Resource Center at Essex County Community Foundation was founded in partnership with Associated Grant Makers in 2012. The Grants Resource Center (GRC) provides information and access to grant seeking databases that help nonprofits locate new sources of funding. The GRC is located at ECCF's office in Danvers, MA and is available by appointment only. For more information, visit http://www.eccf.org/grants-resource-center-312.html
The Grant Resource Network of Merrimack Valley is located at Northern Essex Community College, 45 Franklin St., Lawrence, MA 01841. For an appointment to use the grant resource tools at NECC’s Library, please contact Mike Hearn: firstname.lastname@example.org (978) 738-7400.
Additionally, AGM helped seed Grant Resource Networks in Martha’s Vineyard and Leominster. While no longer active participants in the Grant Resource Network program, these libraries may continue to be a resource for grant seekers.
