During this hour, the Foundation Center's George Ford and Jake Garcia will take a look at how grant seekers can use the interactive maps and charts in Foundation Directory Online, the Foundation Center’s grant seeking database for nonprofits, to identify prospective funders. We will also turn our attention to several data visualization tools developed by the Foundation Center and other organizations that showcase how the philanthropic community has responded to a variety of issues.
