Cancer Research Foundation

The Cancer Research Foundation of America is a national, non-profit health foundation with a single mission: the prevention and early detection of cancer through scientific research and education. CRFA’s Web site has historically been an important means for reaching its most important audience, the general public, and educating consumers on the prevention/detection of cancer.

Heritage Foundation

The Heritage Foundation is a research and educational institute whose mission is to formulate and promote conservative public policies based on the principles of free enterprise, limited government, individual freedom, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.

“We have seen significant efficiencies in the ability to get content published to the Web faster. We don’t have to rely on the technical staff any more to get new reports posted. With thousands of documents, this is a huge time savings. CommonSpot put publishing and editing in the hands of the marketing staff that best know their specific audiences.”

Oregon Historical Society

Oregon Historical Society (OHS) manages over 85,000 artifacts, including ancient objects from the earliest settlements, illustrations of exploration in the Oregon County, the growth of business and industry, the development of artwork and crafts, and maritime history.
