What is NGOsource?

NGOsource, a project of the Council on Foundations and TechSoup, helps U.S. grantmakers streamline their international giving. NGOsource simplifies the task of evaluating whether a non-U.S. organization is the equivalent of a U.S. public charity — a process known as equivalency determination or ED.
