The Laura and John Arnold Foundation last week released an online library with information about hundreds of American nonprofit organizations to help donors explore giving opportunities in one place and make informed decisions.
The new Giving Library also allows philanthropists to communicate directly with participating nonprofits through the library’s Connection Center.
“There is not currently a way for philanthropists to quickly but substantively look into a large number of giving opportunities, and the Giving Library addresses that need,” Meredith Johnson, the foundation’s communications director, said in a statement.
“What would have taken months or even years of meetings and travel can now be done in a matter of days, from anywhere. It’s the new way to give.”
The Arnolds established their foundation in 2008, and signed Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett’s Giving Pledge in 2010.
