They help advance the common good by providing members with legal, career and professional development services. Members may contact each other to share information or communicate with other foundations to discuss issues of common concern.

The Center for Effective Philanthropy

The Center for Effective Philanthropy believes that they can have a profound influence on nonprofits and those they serve by providing philanthropic funders with data that improves the efficacy of their giving. The headline on their banner reads “Better data, Better Decisions, Better Philanthropy”.

The Chronicle of Philanthropy

The Chronicle of Philanthropy claims to be the number one news source for people involved in philanthropy, including nonprofit leaders, fund raisers and grant makers. With a more than a twenty- year history as a philanthropic news source, we deem them worthy of inclusion as a valuable resource for our readers.

The National Council of Nonprofits works to build the effectiveness of its 25,000 plus members. They have associations in 36 states. They have built a collectively strong voice to advocate on behalf of the nonprofit sector.
