About

Looking for grants for your nonprofit?

Come learn how to use Candid’s Foundation Directory Online (FDO).

90% of foundations don't have websites! FDO is the most comprehensive prospect research tool for fundraisers, with nearly 200,000 grantmaker profiles.

Starting promptly at 10 am, this virtual class will provide a 40-minute overview of how to look for grants using FDO Essential, as well as how to use Candid’s other nonprofit resources like Candid Learning and GuideStar.

After this formal instruction, Candid representatives – via Zoom –will hang around to  help answer your other specific questions.

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

San Francisco Public Library is a member of Candid’s Funding Information Network, a consortium of partners that provide local nonprofit communities with access to funding databases, nonprofit trainings, and the opportunity to connect with like-minded social sector professionals.
