NGOsource Update
NGOsource and Corporate Philanthropy
We are excited that corporate foundations and corporate philanthropy programs are increasingly joining NGOsource, a joint project of TechSoup and the Council on Foundations, to support their international grantmaking. This month, we are highlighting the services that NGOsource and TechSoup offer corporate foundations — and the impact that their international giving can have on communities. Read more on our blog.

Wishing you the best,

The NGOsource Team

Last year, global technology leader Medtronic launched the Medtronic Healthy Communities Fund, providing €1 million to fund health-focused charities, in partnership with The Community Foundation for Ireland and the Ireland Funds. Learn how they leveraged an equivalency determination (ED) from NGOsource to accomplish this.

NGO Survey Results

Increasing NGOsource membership leads to a larger repository of completed equivalency determinations (EDs). Our members benefit from each other's completed EDs. When grantmakers request an ED that's already completed, we can reissue it to another member in one day for $250. We all share EDs under the NGOsource model.

NGOsource allows U.S. grantmakers to quickly and accurately determine if a non-U.S. NGO is equivalent to a U.S. public charity (the process of "equivalency determination" or "ED").
