Text reads money for your cause above a pile of money

The Henry Madden Library is excited to announce that access to an important fundraising resource has been expanded.

Finding the right foundation to fund your project can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. That’s why the Henry Madden Library offers free access to the Foundation Directory Online (FDO).ย What is the FDO? It’s a database of over 140,000 foundations and funding organizations looking to support important causes in communities around the world and here at home.

Previously, users had to be physically located inside the Library to access the FDO.ย  Now access has been expanded for this important resource, allowing anyone with a Fresno State ID and password to search the database anywhere there is an Internet connection.

The Library is a proud member of the Foundation Center Funding Information Network, which manages the FDO.

In addition to the FDO, Fresno State Librarians are available to help researchers understand how the database works and can offer tips for finding freely available information or data to improve grant applications.
