U.S. family foundations often tightly guard details about their grantmaking priorities, selection criteria, and even the organizations they support. However, in today’s increasingly digital and connected world, there are platforms that enable nonprofits to glean more information about prospective funders.
Nonprofits looking to engage with foundations, need to do so with an understanding of how to discover who will be most interested in funding their work, how to approach and develop relationships with them, and what it takes to differentiate their organization from the 1.7million nonprofits registered in the U.S.
Beyond creating a compelling digital presence, nonprofits need to be able to utilize resources available to them online, such as Foundation Directory Online (FDO) and GrantSpace. These Candid resources help nonprofits learn about the foundations that would potentially be interested in funding them and how to engage with them online. Doing so will enable themto potentially enter their respective grantmaking processes.
