With libraries under the gun to provide more and better services, and with fewer resources in many cases, they need to come up with innovative and reliable ways to fund new initiatives. Providing targeted access to the most promising major givers, The Big Book of Library Grant Money 2004-2005 is the largest directory available, pulled from an authoritative and up-to-the-minute database of library-specific funders. This forward-looking edition includes more than 2,400 private and corporate foundations and givers that have either indicated an interest in giving money to libraries or have already done so. Organized by state, potential donors in The Big Book are profiled with contact and portfolio information, past contributions summary and analysis, and application information. With historical data, you can track contributions and assets and predict future giving patterns.
