Visibility and Donations

The Online Nonprofit Database, enables nonprofits to gain visibility with donors and streamlines the grant application process. Nonprofits can update their Nonprofit Profile as part of their next grant application or outside of a grant application by visiting the Nonprofit Profile page.
