[ed:  thanks to Doug for replying to James' query.  And Marlynn would 
also like information on this query.]

From: DougRHess at aol.com

You might wish to contact the Center on Community Change as there are  some
roundtable and more/less formal/informal groups of funders. CCC had 
some  staff
involved in these. I don't recall the names of these groups.
Also, the Foundation Center in NYC would a good place to go. Using both 
indexing system of grants (which is kind of awkward and might require some 
creativity to get what you want) and the "reverse directory." Staff 
there are 
very helpful.

I, too, would be interested in references on this topic.  For those who
might have references, please use the listserv.  Thanks.
