All Database Search
Available April 6th, 2010, Director Connections now allows you to easily view all director relationships between all major foundations and corporations in both Canada and the US.

Importantly the new combined relationship mapping between foundations and corporations uncovers thousands of foundation / corporate connections that until now have been hidden from prospect researchers. This new version graphically illuminates almost 80,000 total director connections that greatly extend the funding opportunity possibilities for non-profits.

“Relationship network maps created with Director Connections start with the organizations you already know, and let you explore possible connections with those organizations you WANT to know - now with just a few known foundation or corporate contacts, members can explore a new universe of connected funder possibilities,” says Trevor Skillen, President and CEO of Metasoft.
