Overview
Renewed funding for TechSoup Global will support the third year of operations for NGOsource, a centralized repository of equivalency determinations that enables U.S. foundations to make grants to foreign organizations without the need to ensure expenditure responsibility (which imposes limitations on the use of the funds and burdens grantor and grantee alike with additional recordkeeping and reporting requirements). In 2013 the IRS granted regulatory approval, enabling TechSoup to launch this new service. NGOsource allows U.S. grantmakers to make grants to international NGOs more reliably and cost effectively. It also reduces redundant work for non-U.S. grantseekers, while increasing access to U.S. grantmakers. NGOsource charges fees to grantmakers for their service. As the service scales up, we anticipate NGOsource will become self-sustaining in two years and no longer need funding from the Hewlett Foundation.
