United Way of Kitsap County is home to a Cooperating Collection.

Cooperating Collections are free funding information centers in libraries, community foundations, and other nonprofit resource centers that provide a core collection of Foundation Center publications and a variety of supplementary materials and services in areas useful to grant seekers.

Foundation CenterA key initiative of the Foundation Center is to reach under-resourced and under-served populations throughout the United States and in other locations around the globe, who are in need of useful information and training to become successful grant seekers. One of the ways we accomplish this goal is by designating new Cooperating Collection libraries in regions that have the ability to serve the nonprofit communities most in need of Foundation Center resources. We are seeking proposals from qualified institutions (e.g. public, academic or special libraries, nonprofit resource centers, community foundations, United Ways, etc.) that can help us carry out this important initiative.  Call 360-377-8505 to schedule an appointment to use this resource.
