Grantseekers can access Foundation Directory Online Professional, the Foundation Center’s exclusive fully searchable database of more than 100,000 foundation and corporate grantmakers.

Grantseeking & Organizational Development Resources orientation workshops are offered regularly. These 2-hour sessions include using research data to find appropriate grantmakers, a demonstration of Foundation Directory Online Professional, and tips for successful communication with grantmakers.

Individualized Assistance/Consultation: If you need help with your funding search, we will provide one-on-one assistance to help you maximize your use of Foundation Directory Online Professional and focus your search. If you’d like us to do a search for you, we can do a customized search from your criteria, using multiple resources. Results will be provided in print or electronic format.
