Launches "Ning" For Non Profits uses social networking to help social causes. The site already has it’s own network for linking volunteers to causes and voters to politicians. Now they’ve also launched a new Ning-like DIY white-label social network for non-profits. For the launch, they’ve already partnered with 50 non-profits, like CARE, Greenpeace, and Amnesty International. Any other non-profit can launch their own network as well, as long as you have a government approved tax ID number. You can sign up for one here.

They have modules for all an organization’s main needs: events, fund raising, forums, blogs, members, and posting photos/video. I really like how is evolving overall. The site is about connecting people passionate about a particular cause and not engaging in a shouting match or symbolic gestures of online support.

Other useful services for non-profit work include Wild Apricot,, Tree Nation, and Kevin Bacon’s Six Degrees.
