Beyond any pros or cons, the simple fact is that FDO is the industry standard for grant prospecting databases. Others like GrantStation, GrantSearch, and more can offer some other functionalities or different UX/UI, but ultimately I've never found something that other search platforms had that FDO did not. If you are a non-profit organization, you need a subscription to FDO if you have any serious interest in prospecting (and getting) institutional funding.

WealthEngine is an excellent prospect research tool. P2G scoring and other ratings are easy to understand. This allows for easy segmentation of prospects and prioritization of work for gift officers. We utilize this data for researching first-time donors, grateful patient prospects, and major gift prospects as well. All of our team are very satisfied with this tool.

WealthEngine

  • WealthEngine is expensive for most nonprofits when looking at how to spend their money.
  • WealthEngine seems to have a lot of turn over. Every time I email our account manager, they seem to have changed.
  • WealthEngine can have glitches and does not work at times which is very frustrating.
  • I would also like for WealthEngine to have better mobile service or an app.
