Resources Where You Can Share Knowledge Beyond Your Own Websites

  • Open repositories such as IssueLab, an accessible, searchable, browsable collection of more than 23,000 case studies, evaluations, white papers, and briefs from social sector organizations around the world. Other subject-focused examples include the Education Resources Information Center, or ERIC, run by the U.S. Department of Education; the nonprofit Public Library of Science(PLOS); and the open access scientific knowledge sharing platform ResearchGate.
  • Newsletters, blogs, and events hosted by grantmaker affinity groups and regional associations (e.g., Philanthropy News Digest’s PhilanTopic, Grantmakers in Health Views from the Field, etc.)
  • Conferences and webinars hosted by organizations that focus on philanthropy (e.g., PEAK Grantmaking, Grantmakers for Effective Organizations, etc.), evaluation (e.g., American Evaluation Association, Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation, etc.), or specific content fields.
  • Explore the resources and tools available from the Open Research Funders Group, which is dedicated to the open sharing of research outputs.
  • Journals and magazines focused on philanthropy, the social sector, or a content area of interest (e.g., The Foundation Review, Stanford Social Innovation Review, etc.)
