Local nonprofits and individuals seeking grants can now get extra help from the Deschutes Public Library system.

The library system has become a Funding Information Network partner with the Foundation Center of New York. This means the library has access to a collection of resources on how to apply for grants and details with more than 100,000 sources who issue grants.

The library will host a free workshop on finding funders for nonprofit organizations from 9 to 11 a.m. Oct. 21 at the downtown Bend branch. Registration is limited and required. Participants are welcome to bring their own laptops to follow along. Refreshments will be provided.

To register, contact Nathan Pedersen, nathanp@deschutes library.org, 541-617-7092.
