Looking for grants for your nonprofit?

Come learn how to use Foundation Directory Online (FDO), the most comprehensive prospect research tool for fundraisers, with over 239,000+ grantmaker profiles. You will learn how to search for grantmakers who have funded organizations working on causes and with communities similar to those you serve.

NOTE: This class is for nonprofit organizations looking for funding. It is not geared to individuals seeking grants. We recommend you take our free one-hour course, Introduction to Finding Grants, before attending.


Upon completion of this course you should be able to:

  • Explain what FDO is
  • Identify your needs in preparation for searching for potential grantmakers in FDO
  • Research potential grantmakers using a project-based search in FDO
  • Evaluate prospects for strong or weak fit using FDO
  • Identify the options for accessing FDO
  • Access resources for getting help with FDO

This event is organized by a Funding Information Network partner.
