About the Host Organizations

Careers In Nonprofits


Careers In Nonprofits is built on the idea that great people want to work with great causes. There are many talented candidates who have a passion for working with nonprofits but not many resources focused on nonprofit careers. We connect the best people with the best causes. Our team of nonprofit career professionals has years of experience matching candidates with nonprofit organizations. Serving Chicago, Atlanta, and Washington, D.C., we have extensive networks of connections and strategic partnerships with nonprofit organizations.

40+ of Greater Washington


40 Plus is a non-profit, self-help, volunteer organization offering a proven system of hands-on training, peer support, networking, volunteering, and talks by experts on topics of interest to professionals in career transition. 40 Plus has helped more than 8,000 area professionals land rewarding jobs and new careers since our founding in 1953.

40Plus was founded during the Great Depression.  In 1939, Henry Simler, an executive with the Remington Rand company, created a “40 Plus Committee” at New York City’s Sales Executive Club to help over-40 executives who were having difficulty finding jobs.

Four American giants formed the New York organization’s first Advisory Board: Tom Watson, president and founder of IBM; James Cash Penney, founder of J.C. Penney & Co.; Arthur Godfrey, popular radio and TV personality; and Norman Vincent Peale, minister, inspirational speaker, and author of The Power of Positive Thinking. The concept spread to cities throughout the U.S.

They realized that a program combining training, motivation, and support, led by and for unemployed people, would work wonders.  That's still true today.

Foundation Center


Established in 1956, Foundation Center is the leading source of information about philanthropy worldwide. Through data, analysis, and training, it connects people who want to change the world to the resources they need to succeed.

Foundation Center maintains the most comprehensive database on U.S. and, increasingly, global grantmakers and their grants — a robust, accessible knowledge bank for the sector. It also operates research, education, and training programs designed to advance knowledge of philanthropy at every level.

Thousands of people visit Foundation Center's website each day and are served in its five regional library/learning centers and its network of more than 450 funding information centers located in public libraries, community foundations, and educational institutions nationwide and around the world.
