Visual Quick Start Guide for joining a meeting (includes troubleshooting tips).
Learn to find funders for your nonprofit with the Foundation Center's comprehensive funding research tool.
This session provides an introduction to the Foundation Center's comprehensive online database, Foundation Directory Online Professional. Learn how to create customized searches to develop targeted lists of foundations that will match your nonprofit organization's funding needs. We will spend time exploring Power Search, which allows you to search across nine Foundation Center databases – grantmakers, grants, companies, 990s, news, jobs, RFPs, nonprofit literature, and PubHub reports.
This webinar will include a demonstration of the database followed by hands-on searching time (you may want to allow for at least an extra 30 minutes past the hour to take full advantage of the practice time).
Note: The webinar assumes no previous experience with Foundation Directory Online Professional.
