Are you looking for funding opportunities for your nonprofit agency? Is your nonprofit helping those affected by COVID-19? The Toledo Lucas County Public Library can help!

Foundation Directory Online

Offering the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on foundation giving, this database allows you to search thousands of foundations. Learn about their giving priorities, application information, and key decision makers and leaders.

Candid is providing temporary, free, remote access to Foundation Directory Online (FDO) Essential to TLCPL patrons while the pandemic is affecting on-site access to the Library. Please click here for access. If you are new to FDO Essential, check out this training video for guidance on how to conduct a search.

Need additional research assistance? Zachary Huber, our grants specialist, can assist you with funding searches directly and can email search results including past grants and recipient information. Please email him for additional research assistance.

Additional Resources
