The challenge of serving Knox and Waldo counties has never changed as quickly and as drastically as it has in 2020 and now heading into 2021. We know that your need for expanded funding is critical, and we’re happy to say that we’re continuing free remote access to Foundation Directory Online (FDO) through 2021. FDO provides easy access to 225,000+ grantmaker profiles and 300,000+ key decision makers and leaders.

We have redesigned the access setup due to COVID. A new “Day Pass” system now allows you to go directly to the site whenever you want. Agency representatives can simply click on this link to the FDO login page, whereupon they’ll click through to create an account and be issued a “Day Pass,” which they can use going forward. The day pass allows them to use FDO remotely in a 24-hour window each month. There is a clock at the top of the screen that will tell them how much time remains in the pass. After the 24 hours, the clock will show the next date on which they can activate a new pass (every 30 days). The new system also gives them access to features that were not previously available.

If you have any questions about the new FDO system, please call the UMC office at 207-236-2299 or email
