An outfit called NOZA has just released a free searchable online
database of foundation grant and donation records. The free material is a subset of the company’s trove of giving information, which also includes individual and corporate contributions. Access to the entire collection is available for purchase.
The Nonprofiteer doesn’t promote this service, and she thinks charities spend too much time trolling for grants instead of asking for donations from individuals directly connected to their work. But free information is better than information you have to pay for, and collected information is better than information you have to piece together yourself, so check it out–caveat emptor.
