Here's a 4 1/2-minute interview I conducted with Sarah Jo Neubauer, assistant librarian at the San Francisco Library of the Foundation Center.
The Center, which has been around for more than 50 years, is a nonprofit library and learning center that provides information about U.S. philanthropy and helps organizations and individuals learn how to apply for grants through a rich foundation database.
You can find out how to write a grant proposal to any of the 92,000 profiled foundations. If you're a student, you can learn how and where to apply for financial aid.
Best of all, you can access the Center's resources at one of their libraries around the country, online thorugh a live or recorded webinar, or by directing your questions to a research expert via live chat or email.
