Indexes important journals in business and economics as well as in public service and administration. Try some of these terms:
Articles and tips about the world of grants, charities, and nonprofits in general, including a "management" section. The "gold key" items are only for subscribers (available to Rutgers people through Academic Search Premier), but there is lots of other content to be found at no charge on the site.
A membership organization with a track for those who receive grants, the National Grants Management Association (NGMA) maintains a set of links available to non-members. These cover everything from the Federal Register to the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB).
The Form 990 is an annual IRS filing required of nonprofit organizations, sort of the nonprofit equivalent of a 10-K in the for-profit world. Finding the 990 form you want can be a bit challenging, as any given website does not always make all years of the filings available. More information about decoding and understanding the Form 990 can be found at Demystifying the 990 PF (Foundation Center) and How to Read the Form 990 & Find Out What It Means (NonProfit Coordinating Committee of New York)
