Even more direct is the Neighborhood Funders Group, an affinity group
for foundations involved in primarily urban community development.
www.nfg.org. They don't release their membership list. To get a listing
you'll need to do research at the Foundation Center www.fdncenter.org or
Guidestar www.guidestar.org, especially if you are looking for contacts
for funding. NFG offers conferences for funders and reports.
