Map of Cross-Border Giving
December 15, 2009

Today we added yet another new feature for Professional subscribers!


You now have free access to the Foundation Center's latest tool, Map of Cross-Border Giving, a $595 value, directly from your Professional account. Map of Cross-Border Giving is a powerful visualization tool that lets you access information on U.S. grantmaking to non-U.S. recipients.

See over 30,000 grants totaling more than $8.5 billion on interactive maps — an invaluable tool for finding grants and grantmakers that support non-U.S. organizations.

What you can do:

  • See grants from U.S. grantmakers to non-U.S. recipient organizations.
  • View grantmaker data from independent, community, company-sponsored, and operating foundations as well as corporate giving programs and grantmaking public charities.
  • Filter your map view by fiscal year, grantmaker type, or giving based on recipient type, primary subject, or type of support.
  • Mouse over a country to see the total dollar amount and number of grants awarded, along with the number of grantmakers and recipients giving and receiving funds.
  • Change your display options to see grantmaker or recipients lists, and then click to see descriptions of the grants awarded to recipients in each country.
To get started, log in to FDO and look for the Map of Cross-Border Giving box on the left, then click the "Visit Map of Cross-Border Giving" link.

Power Search Is Here
December 04, 2009

We're thrilled to announce that FDO Professional Power Search has gone out of the beta test phase and is now live! Professional subscribers now have the option to use a powerful search engine to find results from nine Foundation Center databases—grantmakers, companies, grants, and 990s, plus news, jobs, RFPs, PubHub reports, and nonprofit literature—or to use the traditional indexed search screens they're used to.

In additon, FDO users at all subscription levels can now refine their searches on the fly, adding or removing search criteria to narrow and broaden results lists without having to start the search over.

Learn more about Power Search today, and upgrade to Professional to start using all the features FDO provides.
