News for the New Year

Hey, everyone -- I'm outta here [-->retirement :>) ] and want to officially say goodbye. It's been both a privilege and a lot of fun to post on behalf of the Foundation Center's Funding Information Network's partnership with the St. Louis Public Library. Thanks to all of you who followed us, came by, or responded in any way to the information you found here. And thanks to all the nonprofit/philanthropy experts who have shared with us as advisers and program partners.    -KAP

My successor will probably not be selected or in place until midwinter but I hope you'll continue to check these pages especially for the live links to:
  •  regional continuing education calendars, e.g. NSC, AFP and NPML 
  •  recommended resource websites on various nonprofit topics
  •  information about GFC here at Central, especially January's  "Thinking about Starting a Nonprofit???" series. 
The GFC message phone, 314-539-0357, will continue to be answered daily.
Also want to let you know that last month we revised and updated our Directory of St. Louis Metro Area Human Services Help Organizations. This 133-page document, indexed by both agency name and subject heading, includes up-to-date contact information for more than 700 local nonprofits. It will soon be available to check at the reference desks in all St. Louis Public Library branches; you can request a free pdf copy or inquire about your agency's listing via e-mail here.
