TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Sept 10, 2012 – The Community Foundation of North Florida is excited about launching FindLearnGive.org, the community’s first comprehensive online database of local nonprofits. The website will connect the community with local charities and help donors and citizens research organizations and their needs. The Foundation encourages local nonprofits to complete their organization profile on FindLearnGive.org prior to the November launch.

“We are working hard to ensure all of the 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the Foundation’s Big Bend area (Leon, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jackson, Jefferson Liberty, Madison, Taylor and Wakulla counties) attend a training session and complete an organization profile. We want every organization to have the opportunity for their profile to be posted on the website by the November 8 launch date,” said Joy Watkins, President of the Community Foundation of North Florida.

FindLearnGive.org is a powerful online tool serving as a resource to find local nonprofits, learn more about them and give if you wish. The website will be the community’s go-to source for information about local nonprofits. The website’s nonprofit database contains comprehensive information on organization’s people, programs, financials and governance and will provide a high level of transparency to potential donors and the community. This free online tool will help donors make informed decisions and provide them with a high level of confidence about giving to their favorite nonprofits.
