WHAT IS RSS?WHAT IS RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication". It is a way to easily receive a list of headlines, update notices, and content from your favorite websites and blogs. Computer pragrams can then organize those headlines and notices for easy reading.

TheLCF.org contains four RSS feeds: News, Grant Stories, the Endowment Fund Roundtable Blog, and TheLCF.org homepage.

How to access RSS feeds:

There are a number of ways to access RSS feeds. You can install a newsreader that displays RSS feeds from the Web sites you select, enabling you to view hundreds of headlines at once. Once you have selected a newsreader, you can add each feed manually from the Web site.  Many web browsers also feature tools for collecting RSS feeds.

To download a news reader, select any number of free software or web-based aggregators for download through the following site: http://reviews.cnet.com/4520-10088_7-6651890.html?tag=cnetfd.mt

In your news reader, select the option that adds a new feed or channel, then paste in the URL and click OK.
