Google.com lets users create custom search engines. Here’s an interesting example of how Google technology can be used to create more efficient information distribution in philanthropy.
Developed by E-Democracy.org, the custom search tool is described this way by the creator:
To assist E-Democracy.Org’s grant prospecting efforts I put together a little (big actually) Google Custom Search covering foundations, some government funding sites, and sites with fund raising advice for non-profits.
You can use E-Democracy’s custom search engine here and create your own here.
