Six Months' Free Use of a New Service Allowing Public Charities To More Easily Acquire Grants From Private Foundations

Foundation Source Access will launch this fall.   We’re writing to give you advance word that nonprofits may now pre-register at Foundation Source for the upcoming giving season.  Nonprofits that pre-register by October 1st will be able to use Foundation Source for the next six months at no cost.   

The fact is, philanthropy has “moved online.” What has yet to develop, however, is a way for charities and donors to share actionable information with each other-- information that would lead to more efficient fundraising from the private foundation community. 

More than 900 private foundations across the country use Foundation Source for back office services, online charity research and philanthropic support.  These foundations grant more than $250 million annually to a wide range and variety of nonprofit organizations.  And 80% have told us they’d rather receive direct, straightforward requests than long, formal proposals.

For the first time, we are making it possible for public charities to reach out to this community directly and to seek funding from donor-led and family foundations for their most deserving projects.
