    Foundation Directory Online provides access to an unprecedented wealth of timely, comprehensive information on grantmakers and their grants. Included is a database of the entire universe of over 96,000 foundations, corporate giving programs, and grantmaking public charities in the U.S.; a database of over 3,500 sponsoring companies, offering a quick pathway to corporate funders; a database of over 1.5 million recently awarded grants; and a keyword-searchable database of over 561,000 recently filed IRS Forms 990 and 990-PF. Unique funder portfolios organize additional funder-specific content in one convenient location and include: grantmaker-related news, job opportunities, and Request For Proposals (RFPs); grantmaker-sponsored publications; and officer and trustee affiliations.
