Community Development
C.D. Howe Institute
Development and Public Affairs Officer
Toronto, Ontario

"We are a small organization with limited resources, and FoundationSearch and Big Online truly builds our internal capacity. Through this service, we have been able to efficiently identify prospective donors for particular projects without wasting valuable staff hours on massive prospecting campaigns. The keyword search allows us to identify organizations that support the particular activities on which we are currently focused, and the donor history allows us to adjust the size of our ask. I am confident recommending this service to any organization looking to allocate limited resources in a targeted, efficient and effective manner."

Cumberland Regional Economic Development Association (CREDA)
Development Field Officer - Community & Communications
Amherst, Nova Scotia

"As a Regional Development Authority we are constantly challenged to match the Community Economic Development needs and aspirations of our rural communities and volunteer led not-for-profit groups and organizations with the realities of fundraising. BigOnline/Foundation Search is our "go to'' resource for identifying foundations and organizations that may be a potential source of funding and for matching their areas of giving with our individual needs and goals. It is user friendly, easy to navigate and Big Online staff are readily available to provide helpful tips and friendly advice. We are pleased to renew our membership. It is an investment in the long term sustainability of our communities. "
Community Development
Habitat for Humanity Capital Region
Operations Manager
Lansing, MI

"As the grants manager at Habitat for Humanity Capital Region, I’m excited to have Foundation Search in our development toolbox. The program provides a user-friendly and robust interface to incredible amounts of data about potential funding partners, and that access frees up staff time to build relationships because research is made easy. Attentive, accommodating customer service and countless training and education opportunities make Foundation Search a great investment for nonprofits."
Community Development
Ashley County Skilled Workcenter, Inc.
Executive Director
Crossett, Arkansas

"As the Director of a very small non-profit serving adults with disabilities in rural south Arkansas, I and my administrative staff wear many hats daily! We do not have the resources to hire a grant-writer or development officer, and nobody on staff has time to spend hours researching possible funding sources. David Persad did an outstanding job of presenting this wonderful tool to our administrative staff, and he makes us feel confident that we have a truly dedicated, experienced partner as we move forward with our mission. I am delighted at the prospect of reducing our agency’s dependency on Medicaid dollars and community donations by utilizing Foundation Search to locate and secure additional funding.

Thanks so much for all of your help and encouragement! We look forward to working with you! "
