Using the Database
After logging on, you can do a general search by entering your keywords into the search bar at the top of the page. If you want to narrow your search, do so by using the filters available on the right-hand side. Limiting your search by cause, region and / or type of support, will help you find the best funder for your cause.
You can also browse the list of funders, sorting the results by name, median gift, deadline and capacity.
Once you have found some potential funders, you can see more information about their organization by clicking into their profile including their contact information, funding programs, gift analysis and links to their website.
