When Buildings Need an Open Door—and Maybe a Grant

When Buildings Need an Open Door—and Maybe a Grant
Thursday, May 29, 2014

Our ECCF office in Danvers gets a lot of great vistiors coming by for lots of great reasons. Today, Kelly Hartnett, Development Coordinator at SHED Inc. in Andover, MA, stopped by to research grants at our EBSCO-funded Grants Resource Center in the corner of our office.

SHED is a non-profit, out-of-school time organization dedicated to providing children and families with a safe, nurturing, supportive environment which encourages independence and individual growth.

"The EBSCO database is a great way for us at SHED to find untapped sources of funding," Kelly said. "We’re approaching our 30th anniversary and our building needs renovations that we can’t necessarily provide on our own. Grant research gives us a way to capture funds that we didn’t have access to before. The database is so huge it’s almost overwhelming. But it’s great for a nonprofit like SHED."

Here's hoping the building gets what it needs for the good folks at SHED Inc. Oh, and if you're in the neighborhood, come on by. The door's always open.
