The Verizon Foundation launches an online resource center to help not for profit companies use technology.

The communications company debuted its online help initiative for nonprofit organizations today, according to a press release. The foundation’s Resource Center offers a variety of resources. For example, a link to Planning led to a section on market research, and from there information on freely available market research reports.

“This resource is a natural extension of our commitment to empower organizations to use technology to better serve the community,” said Patrick Gaston, Verizon Foundation president.

A number of training options, for which 1,200 first-come first-serve grants have been made available, may be found at the site. Training options include online and face-to-face training in a number of fields.

“This is an impressive mix of best-in-class education and training resources,” said Michael Schreiber, United Way of America executive vice president. “The Web site’s format provides an easy-to-use, innovative set of tools that will benefit the entire nonprofit community.”
