Foundation Directory Online Joins METRO's Deep List of Vendor Discounts


METRO is pleased to announce the addition of Foundation Directory Online, a database from the Foundation Center, to our extensive roster of vendor discounts. METRO members who are first-time subscribers to FDO will save 10% on a Foundation Directory Online Professional site-wide account.

The Foundation Directory Online (FDO) database is the nation's leading institutional funding research tool used to help connect grantseekers with grantmakers, including foundations, corporate donors, and grantmaking public charities. Updated weekly, FDO provides the most current, accurate, and comprehensive information available on over 110,000 funders and their more than 3 million recent grants. FDO is commonly used by:

  • University development officers seeking general operating funds
  • Professors, researchers, and administrators to fund curriculum development, special projects, publications, travel, and conference attendance
  • Students studying the field
  • Librarians researching and serving the philanthropic community

Prices for site-wide subscriptions are based on organization type and size. For a price quote, or to request a free trial, please contact Nora Niesen at the Foundation Center. Interested parties may also call 212-807-2490 for more information or visit the website to take a brief tour of FDO.
