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.

This virtual class will provide an overview of how to look for grants using FDO Essential (now available remotely via Phoenix Public Library), as well as how to claim your public profile on Guidestar and use Candid’s other services.

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.

Phoenix 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.
