Intro to Foundation Directory Online

Come learn how to use Foundation Directory Online (FDO), the most comprehensive prospect research tool for fundraisers, with over 189,000+ 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:

  • Identify your needs in preparation for searching for potential grantmakers in FDO
