New Grants Database

Thank you to Advancing Macomb for funding one year of access to the Foundation Directory Online (FDO) provided by Candid! FDO is the most extensive, up-to-date database of philanthropic giving available. This resource can help you build your prospect list, look at previous awardees’ profiles, and enhance your understanding of funding that may be available at an individual or organization level. Learn how to write a grant proposal, find out when you should approach a foundation for funding and other tips and tricks that may help. Grants to Individuals is also available to people looking for funding for individual projects not associated with an organization.

The full version of FDO and Grants to Individuals are available to access from the Main Library. If you are at a branch or at home, a limited version of FDO is available. Access them here under the Grants category.
