We invite you to accept our invitation to explore the resources available through
Foundation Directory Online!
Grantseekers of all experience levels can benefit from this comprehensive service!
As a member of Candid's Funding Information Network, CFOV can share free public access to
databases and resources designed with grantseekers in mind.
The Foundation Directory Online (FDO) is a GIANT database of funding opportunities and details.
Thanks to CFOV, this resource was previously available on the campus of Wheeling University
some years ago and under the umbrella of the Foundation Center.
After some rebranding and fine tuning, the service is now a Candid product.
Not only is it much more robust, but it is now available in our building!
CFOV's commitment to area nonprofits is certainly strengthened through this partnership.
A dedicated space on the second floor of our building serves as a nonprofit resource center
and features workstations connected to the FDO.
Although attendance at these sessions is not required to be a successful grantseeker,
they will certainly help to orient you to become an efficient researcher!
In addition to the facilitated On the Menu sessions, Candid has a huge
tutorial library full of resources to get you ready to search!
dedicated FDO database space on our second floor.
This in-person setting is NOT the same thing as the limited day pass mentioned during our April Zoom session.
We look forward to supporting your grantseeking and thank the Elizabeth Stifel Kline Foundation for providing the funding that allows us to offer this resource to our community!
