The Philanthropy Center at College of DuPage will host "The First Step in Fundraising: Learn to Use the Tools at the Philanthropy Center" orientation sessions from 9:30 to 11 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 8, and Tuesday, Mar. 26, in the College's Library in the Student Resource Center on the main campus, 425 Fawell, Glen Ellyn.
These free workshops will offer a hands-on introduction to the databases and books available at the College of DuPage Library. Participants will learn how to access and make use of the Library's extensive catalog of resources related to philanthropic and fundraising topics, including information on charitable trusts and foundations, grants, endowments, nonprofit organizations, proposal writing and sponsorship.
The Philanthropic Center is the result of a partnership between College of DuPage and the Donors Forum designed to meet the information needs of nonprofit organizations located in the western suburbs of Chicago.
