Actually, Foundation Source just launched a new online philanthropy network called Foundation Source Access that enables nonprofits and foundations, for the first time, to find each other online based on their interests, resources and mutual philanthropic missions. Using Access, nonprofits can present their most urgent fundraising needs and find new foundation donors in an easier and more cost-effective way that circumvents the usual obstacles that you lay out in your post. Access is the first service to offer fresh and relevant information about specific projects and causes directly from the source, allowing private foundations to seek projects that match their own missions. Nearly 1000 private foundation clients of ours currently have the ability to search profiles and project pages through Access. As private foundations review funding projects there, they can interact with comments and endorsements, ask questions of the nonprofit, and in the very near future, participate in foundation-only forums. Foundations may also visit Cause pages to learn about major philanthropic initiatives in urgent need such as the earthquake in Haiti, and then fund projects that directly address those needs. When a “match” is made, our clients can click on a Grant button to send funds instantaneously. In short, everyone benefits, as Access makes it easier and less expensive to match donors and recipients. access.foundationsource.com
