Service Tree

The Service Tree lists all services in "branched" groups, starting with the very general and moving to the very specific. Click on the name of any group name to see the sub-groups available within it. Click on a service code to see its details and the providers who offer that service.

Community Funds

An organized community program that makes annual appeals to the general public for funds which are usually not retained in an endowment but are used for the ongoing operational support of local social and health service agencies.

Federated Giving Programs

Joint fund-raising efforts usually administered by a nonprofit "umbrella" organization like United Way, United Jewish Appeal or the United Negro College Fund which, in turn, distributes the contributed funds to several nonprofit agencies.

Governmental Contracts/Grants Offices

City, county, state or federal government offices that are responsible for handling grants and contracts for the provision of services.

Private Foundations

Nongovernmental, nonprofit organizations that are established to maintain or aid social, educational, religious or other charitable activities primarily through grants using assets which are usually contributed by a single source such as an individual, family or corporation. Private foundations may be general purpose or have giving programs that reflect a particular interest.

Public Charities

Nonprofit organizations that derive their funding or support primarily from a broad segment of the general public to carry out their social, educational, religious or other charitable activities serving the common welfare; and are exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Public charities are the recipients of most foundation and corporate grants, and some also provide grants.
