Searching For Maryland Donors

Until recently, if you wanted to find a donor for your Maryland non-profit, you would have had to turn to Foundation Directory—a well established, well organized, but expensive list of potential donors. Enter Noza. Using this free online database, you can search either by company/donor name (and then see a list of their contributions and who received them) or search using the “Search By Cause” option and search for a Maryland donor for a specific cause. Data is gathered from freely available sources on the web. Entries in the database are limited in how much information they provide, but provide a good jumping off point for further research.
