Funding Information Network

The San Mateo Public Library is part of Candid's Funding Information Network, a resource of information for nonprofits.  Funding Information Network locations provide local nonprofits with tools they can use to become successful grantseekers.

Representatives of nonprofit and grassroots organizations as well as other patrons are welcome to use the databases any time during library open hours.  If you have questions, please contact Information Services at (650) 522-7818 or the FIN Lead at for additional assistance or an appointment.
