Keep up on all the Givesource happenings.

Across the country, they are called Giving Days — 24-hour fundraising frenzies. Donors who contribute to nonprofit groups, naturally, want as much of their money as possible to go to the charities, as opposed to administrative costs. A Nebraska company now has devised an approach it says will direct more of the donations to nonprofits.

Givesource®, a software platform for community foundations hosting giving days, announced today that it is now available as open source software. This makes Givesource® the only giving day platform that can be used for free, while also making it possible for software developers around the world to contribute new features.

Community Foundations can save thousands in fees through new platform.
