Hartford Public Library offers unique resources and engaging learning opportunities for nonprofits aimed at capacity building and fundraising.
The Library maintains a core collection of continuously updated materials in multiple formats that address the specific needs of local nonprofit, grassroots and faith-based organizations.
The Library is also part of the New York based Foundation Center’s Cooperating Collection network. The Center’s mission is to foster public understanding of institutional philanthropy by collecting, organizing, analyzing, and disseminating information on foundations, corporate giving, and related subjects through a core collection of Center materials and databases.
Our nonprofit workshops are conducted by expert consultants in their fields, local leaders, and attorneys and many are tailored to the specific needs of nonprofit managers, staff, board members and other key stakeholders. Selected workshops are supported in part by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving and The Alliance for Non-Profit Growth and Opportunity (TANGO).
We provide tools, resources and information that will help non-profit organizations fulfill the missions of their organizations.
