Directory Information & Supporters

Consultants and other nonprofit specialists are always looking for ways to help nonprofits find and understand their services. Nonprofits want a trusted source of information and referrals. 501 Commons' Statewide Nonprofit Resource Directory meets these needs by being a “first-stop” for nonprofits looking for service providers ready and able to serve Washington State organizations.

A December 2009 study by The Giving Practice for seven Northwest funders stated that “One of the essential [nonprofit] ecosystem elements is a trusted source of information and referral to capacity-building services. None of the [WA State] community hubs we looked at had such a system, and it was mentioned as a high priority in King County in particular.”

Even before this study, 501 Commons was envisioning an online resource directory coupled with personalized help. Such a directory would allow 501 Commons to build on its 20+ years of matching nonprofits with appropriate resources and would allow us to provide a valuable, statewide service.

Thanks to the start-up funding and ongoing support of the organizations below, 501 Commons' Information & Referral (I&R) Program – including the Resource Directory and free, personalized I&R help – is going strong!

  • Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
  • Campion Foundation
  • Paul G. Allen Family Foundation
  • The Seattle Foundation
  • Social Venture Partners

We also thank the many consultants and other service providers whose listing fee helps sustain this program. Plus, we're honored by program contributions from individuals, such as:
