If your project does not meet the Community Foundation funding priorities, please consider visiting the Findlay-Hancock County Public Library Reference Desk to access Foundation Directory Online (FDO), a searchable, user-friendly database of nationwide grant opportunities. Access is free and open to the public. Reference desk staff will provide the required password to access FDO on a library computer and any support users may need.
The FDO database is updated continually and provides the most accurate details available on nearly 100,000 foundations, corporate giving programs, and grantmaking public charities in the U.S.: a database of over 4,000 sponsoring companies, offering a quick pathway to corporate funders; a database of over 2.4 million recently awarded grants, and a keyword-searchable database of over 700,000 recently filed IRS Forms 990 and 990-PF.
The online database is maintained by the Foundation Center, a national nonprofit service organization recognized as the nation’s leading authority on organized philanthropy, connecting nonprofits and the grantmakers supporting them to tools they can use and information they can trust. The Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. grantmakers and their grants.
