Foundation Directory Online (FDO) makes your foundation fundraising easier — and more effective.
FDO makes it easy to turn foundations into funders. It’s the only resource you need to search for the foundations most likely to give you grants and manage your prospects through to funding.
FDO simplifies and speeds up your process with:
- A thorough database, comprising more than 140,000 grantmakers, that is updated weekly so you can count on the accuracy of results
- Multiple filters and an assessment tool help you quickly identify your best potential funding sources
- A prospect management platform that automates much of the grantseeking process and stores your data for you
FDO helps nonprofits secure grants — and is funded by grants, too!
FDO is a service of the Foundation Center, a nonprofit dedicated to empowering and increasing knowledge about philanthropy. Like you, we seek funding from foundations. So we understand your challenges and goals — because they’re ours, too!Learn About FDO Try FDO QUICK START
