Foundation Center: Focus on the Economic Crisis

COF EconomicXchange:

The Foundation Center’s new online feature, Focus on the Economic Crisis, provides a wide array of resources to help nonprofits and foundations alike as they face the challenges of an unstable economy. Updated regularly, it includes interactive maps showing the geographic locations of community resources and funders; news, interviews, research, blog posts, and podcasts about the crisis and its potential impact on philanthropy; and information on training and scholarships that will help grantseekers become better fundraisers in an increasingly competitive environment.

“At times of crisis, Americans look to their local nonprofits for assistance,” said Brad Smith, president of the Foundation Center. “Our goal is to make sure that nonprofits and the foundations that support them have the knowledge they need to weather the storm.”
