Further bolstering our support for non-profits beyond grants is the CAFF Foundation Resource Room and Foundation Center Cooperating Collection—an array of tools, information and training to enable growth and sustainability for area non-profits. The Frueauff Foundation believes that in order for organizations and institutions to not only survive but to thrive, they must have well-educated and trained staff, a supportive community, and loyal donors. The Foundation Center helps to insure the above through on-line tutorials and workshops. Organizations are provided the necessary tools to find and efficiently cultivate support.
We encourage you to visit the Foundation Center website right from your own office. There are a number of great tools available on a regular basis and often free. (Look at the webinars they offer.) FoundationCenter.org
