About

Looking for grants for your nonprofit?

Come learn how to use Foundation Directory Online (FDO) at the main branch of the San Francisco Public Library. 90% of U.S. foundations don't have websites! Foundation Directory Online is the most comprehensive prospect research tool for fundraisers, with over 140,000 grantmaker profiles.

An FDO representative will be onsite from 10 am to 12 noon every second Wednesday in the 5th floor computer lab at San Francisco Public Library.

Starting promptly at 10 am, we will provide an overview of how to look for grants using Foundation Directory Online. Afterward, get in some private search time in SFPL’s computer lab. Our representative will remain available until noon to answer individual questions about how to find potential funders.

NOTE: This class is for nonprofit organizations looking for funding. It is not geared to individuals seeking grants. We recommend you view our free one-hour webinar, Introduction to Finding Grants, before attending.

Upon completion of this course you should be able to:

  • Research potential grantmakers using a project-based search in FDO
