The Virtual Resource Center @ Philanthropy Massachusetts is available to active Nonprofit Partners. Here, our Partners can access four key databases for grants research:
- The Philanthropy MA RFP listings: Philanthropy MA collects Requests for Proposals from our own grantmaking Members as well as RFPs that we find in a multitude of locations.
- Foundation Directory Online (FDO): Published by the Foundation Center, the FDO contains profiles and searchable giving data on over 92,000 foundations
- Guidestar Premium (GP): More robust than the basic Guidestar option, GP allows for advanced data analysis on the nonprofit and philanthropic sector.
Our staff provides one-on-one training to help you get the most out of the databases over Zoom. In addition, we can help to answer all manner of questions regarding grants, proposals, and all things pertaining to nonprofit management.
*Our in-office Resource Center is closed for now, but we are offering remote access to these resources for all of our Funder Members and Nonprofit Partners. To access the RFP Catalog, please log into your philanthropy MA account. To use Foundation Directory Online, to access Guidestar Premium information, or to set up a complimentary tutorial in the databases, please email Katherine Cook to set up an appointment.
