Foundation Directory Online – Free Grant Research Tool

Finding and applying for funding is one of those essential never-ending tasks for nonprofits. It can be extremely time-consuming trying to find out what funding opportunities exist, how to apply, and whether or not it is worth your time to apply. Even then, if you are not familiar with the funder, you may want to know more about them and their credibility and gain a deeper perspective of the type of work they do.

Candid, a national leader in collecting, aggregating, and sharing information about the nonprofit and funding sector, has a tool to help you with this challenge. Members of the Alliance receive access to Candid’s entire funder database, known as the Foundation Directory Online (FDO). In the age of COVID, we know that you can’t always make it to our office to do that research. So, Candid has come up with a free 24-hour digital pass. With this tool, you can access the entire foundation directory from the convenience of your computer and conduct as much research as you would like within those 24 hours. After 24-hours, you can continue your research one month later.

Some of the most powerful information you will find includes:

Types of funders

Where funders are located

What types of projects/organizations funders support

How much support they offer

How frequently they fund

What they are looking for in determining who to support and more 

To receive your 24-hour monthly access, contact training@alliancems.org.
