The Yuma County Library has a dedicated space for nonprofits and grant writers to collaborate, meet, and learn about grant opportunities to better the Yuma community. We are Yuma’s only Funding Information Network Partner where a librarian can assist you with the self-guided online Foundation Center’s resources on a dedicated Grants computer. The library is part of the Yuma Area Nonprofit Institute known as YANPI, a networking group that meets once a month at various locations. The purpose of the group is to serve, support and promote Yuma County’s nonprofits and provide training and networking opportunities. YANPI is an affiliate of the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits ensuring that our local voice is heard at the state and national level.
