Whether you’re a nonprofit or an individual, we understand that securing grant funding is no easy feat. Annual subscriptions to online grant portals, purchasing physical materials, and hiring experts are expensive, and scouring the web is time-consuming and inefficient.

That’s why CVCF offers FREE resources and workshops for grantseekers. Our Center for Research is conveniently located in CVCF’s office in the Fig Garden Financial Center in Fresno. The Center for Research is an easy-to-use resource for anyone looking to research grant and funding opportunities. Additionally, we are offering a FREE grantwriting workshop on Wednesday, May 31 from 1:30-4:30pm.

The Center for Research has two dedicated computers with full web access, as well as access to a full subscription of the Foundation Center Online Directory. The Foundation Center Online is a user-friendly and indispensable resource for organizations and individuals seeking grant funding, with the ability to look up grant opportunities locally, state-wide, nation-wide, and even internationally. Never used the Foundation Center Directory before? No problem – just let us know, and one of our staff will be happy to walk you through it!

Guests of the Center for Research also have access to a printer so you can take all of that valuable information back to the office with you, free of charge. If you prefer physical materials, we’ve got you covered there, too – the Center also houses a library of books pertaining to grant funding, nonprofit management, and much more!

Please join us for a free grantwriting workshop on Wednesday, May 31 from 1:30-4:30pm. With instruction from the U.S. Census Bureau, participants will learn to find and effectively use demographic data to write compelling and effective grant proposals.
