Last week I published my listing of online resources culled from readers of The Grow Report.
Nonprofit news, writing and editing, marketing, blogs, social media – the resources poured in.
It’s a fairly extensive lineup of websites nonprofit professionals use on a regular basis. You can access a pdf of the list here.
Many of the sites were familiar to me and had been bookmarked on my own trusty mac for years. One however, Movie Mondays, was a new and exciting find. The site features short movies with tons of information coming straight from the horse’s mouth. Development directors talk about all the challenges facing nonprofits in today’s economy. Succinct and engaging and definitely worth checking out.
Another resource, NOZA, the “world’s largest database of charitable donations,” is a site that I have used for years for their free charitable foundation research. Followers of Simple Development Systems know that a minimum of an hour’s research into foundation prospect research is critical to establishing a successful grants program. Thanks to NOZA nonprofits can easily locate foundations without subscribing to a service.
Now NOZA has just revealed their new Announced Gifts Alert a weekly compilation from the company’s daily scan of millions of web pages. As NOZA notes: Most of contributions are of the seven-figure variety, but the editors also include smaller gifts if they deem them as “transformational” or newsworthy.
