One of the many benefits of an FDO subscription at the Professional level is access to Update Central, where you can get a quick summary of the numbers of newly added grantmakers; high growth grantmakers (significant increases in total giving or total assets); and grantmakers with contact information changes, fields of interest or types of support changes, and leadership changes.
You can also build a custom Update Generator by selecting category—new, high growth, or recent changes—and one or more states. Run the generator to get a list of grantmakers meeting your criteria along with a brief description of the update and a link to each grantmaker's FDO profile. In addition, you can sign up to receive summaries of each month's additions and updates to our grantmaker database via e-mail.
Here's a summary of updates for May 2010:
|Category||Updates||Year To Date|
|High Growth Grantmakers||30||729|
|Contact Information Changes||1,254||5,463|
|Fields of Interest/Types of Support Changes||646||2,493|
