View which foundations give to an organization segment

In this help article...

Cause IQ's funding tool in the search interface allows users to understand which foundations give to organizations matching certain search criteria or organizations you've added to a peer list. This tool lists the foundations Cause IQ identifies giving to the organizations in your search segment and shows how many grants a specific foundation made to organizations within the search, the average grant size, the smallest and largest grant sizes, and more.

First, use Cause IQ's search filter sidebar to narrow down on a segment of organizations that meet specific parameters, or open a list of organizations you have manually created/uploaded into Cause IQ. To access the funding tool, click the "Funding" tab from Cause IQ's search interface.
