Benton Foundation

From the site: "The Benton Foundation works to realize the social benefits made possible by the public interest use of communications. Bridging the worlds of philanthropy, public policy, and community action, Benton seeks to shape the emerging communications environment and to demonstrate the value of communications for solving social problems. Through demonstration projects, media production and publishing, research, conferences, and grantmaking, Benton probes relationships between the public, corporate, and nonprofit sectors to address the critical questions for democracy in the information age."

The website includes Benton's Best Practices Toolkit, which offers tools to help nonprofits make effective use of communications and information technologies. (To get there, click on Communications Policy and Practice from the home page)
