Council on Foundations - an association of foundations and corporations, serves the public good by promoting and enhancing effective and responsible philanthropy. The Council's Community Foundation Services department is committed to providing community foundations with assistance, resources and tools to make grantmaking more effective. The Council also maintains an outstanding "community foundation locator" with contact information.

Donors Forum of Wisconsin - DFW has initiated a program to help strengthen the impact of community foundations especially in rural and underserved counties in Wisconsin. It has also taken a lead role as facilitator and implementer of statewide standards and best practices for Community Foundations.

The Foundation Center - Nonprofit Information clearinghouse established in 1956. The Center's mission is to foster public understanding of the foundation field by collecting, organizing, analyzing, and disseminating information on foundations, corporate giving, and related subjects.

Foundations On-Line - Foundations and Grantmaker Directory. Provided by the Northern California Community Foundation. This directory lists foundations and grantmakers by name. You can either scroll through the directory, or click on a letter to jump to a specific organization's information or home page.

Verizon Foundation - Beginning immediately, nonprofits can request an eGrant from Verizon Foundation, in the amount of $240, toward Internet access from the vendor of their choice. All you need to do is select the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and complete the application. Although the program targets smaller non-profits (those with annual budget under $500,000) any organization with a 501(c)(3) (public charity), served by Verizon Communications, may apply. Verizon also offers scholarships for nonprofit technology training through their E-Training program.
