About this grant

The Orpheus Programme maintains a database on funders, produces subject-specific funding directories, operates a Funders Online Web site, and coordinates a network of funding information and support centers across Europe.Funding will enable the program to expand information on member organizations in the database; share information in print and electronic formats; supply tailored information services; improve information delivery and communications through the Internet; provide capacity-building training activities for information officers in the networks’ resource centers and philanthropy professionals; and promote pan-European and global networks of donor associations.Since its creation in 1993, the project has grown into a network of 52 centers spread throughout Europe.
