There are thousands of organizations and consultants that provide valuable services to support foundations and non-profits. Below are those that we at Laughing Gull Foundation have found to be useful and are happy to recommend to you.

Fundraising Resources:


If you are seeking funding, the following resources may be of use to you.

The Foundation Center seeks to strengthen the social sector by advancing knowledge about philanthropy in the U.S. and around the world.

The Grassroots Institute for Fundraising Training (GIFT) is a multiracial organization that promotes the connection between fundraising, social justice, and movement-building. GIFT believes that how groups are funded is as important to achieving their goals as how the money is spent, and that building community support is central to long-term social change. We provide training, resources, and analysis to strengthen organizations, with an emphasis on those focused on social justice and based in communities of color.

Guidestar's mission is to revolutionize philanthropy by providing information that advances transparency, enables users to make better decisions, and encourages charitable giving.
