PITTSFIELD — Nonprofit organizations and other individuals seeking information on grant funding will no longer have to leave Pittsfield or Berkshire County to find it.

City officials yesterday announced the formation of the Berkshire Funding Resource Center, a program housed at the Berkshire Athenaeum on Wendell Avenue, that will provide free direct online access to the Foundation Center, a subscription-only database that includes more than 80,000 foundations and corporate giving programs, and more than 500,000 previously awarded grants. The center also features a selection of directories and guides to proposal writing and grants research, along with other topics."
