A UNIQUE SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOL FOR NON-PROFITS
“We are very excited about Grantmakers Online.
The site is still in early stages of development, its growth and evolution will depend on its users.
We have many plans for its advancement and think it has a good deal of potential,”
says David Wickert, Chapel & York’s Chief Executive.
CHARITIES & NGOS ARE LOOKING FOR FUNDING BECAUSE BILLIONS OF PEOPLE DEPEND ON THEIR SERVICES. JUST LAUNCHED, A UNIQUE SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOL THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
The first of its kind, anywhere in the world!
It’s hugely time consuming for a charity or NGO to search the web for organizations that might support it financially. Databases are well beyond the means of smaller charities and most organizations in the developing world but, with a few exceptions, databases offer a limited analysis of what grant makers actually support, and the best source of information is therefore grant maker’s website.
Grantmakers Online is a FREE interactive database of worldwide grant-makers. Developed to answer the need for a central location for identifying potential funders in a particular country/region from wherever you are in the world, it currently includes over 6000 entries (and growing!) of grant-makers from around the world who have websites in English and who make grants either nationally or internationally.
Grantmakers Online goes much further than being just an ordinary database. It’s a philanthropic community, powered by its users who can share what they know and benefit from other people’s sharing. If Charities won’t share for the common good, who will? Its interactive design is such that you can add details of new grant-makers known to you which are not listed on the database; amend existing grant-maker records in the light of your own experiences; post comments and ask questions of your peers: and share experiences across the world of fundraisers.
In addition, grant-makers themselves are encouraged to use the database as a shop window for their services. Updating their own entries as their policies evolve, answering questions posted by fundraisers, and notifying the community of RFPs and other grant opportunities.
Grantmakers Online is still evolving and as it develops it will become an invaluable central point of contact for fundraisers and grant-makers worldwide.
