COVID-19 and Grant Resources
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic the Newburgh Library is currently offering reduced access to the Public. Limited numbers of patrons may enter the library and use our computers for 30 minutes. During that time you will have full access to the FOUNDATION DIRECTORY ONLINE Professional, Candid's (formerly Foundation Center) flagship database of grants and grant makers. We hope to expand access time to one hour beginning on April 19th.
We are also pleased to be able to announce that Candid has temporarily allowed us to provide off-site access to their:
This database gives our patron access to profiles of 103,000 grantmakers, with the capability of searching their 990 forms for further information about the grantmakers.
Beginning on March 25, 2021, Candid will require patrons to create an account when they access FDO Essential, which they will then use whenever they return to the database. This will allow them to store information and useful searches onsite, between visits. However, access will be restricted to one, 24 hour period each month. When patrons log into their accounts, they will be given a 24 "Day Pass" allowing them to use the database remotely within a 24 hour window, and the system will track their remaining access time for them. After the 24 hours, the system will show them them the next time when they can access the system and receive another Day Pass., which will be every 30 days.
If you have questions you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
