FSF is of course the GNY project: http://www.gnu.org/

GNA is not just about software but recently have expanded in content
issues, for example the GNUPedia project.

CNRI: Corporation for National Research Initiatives
http://www.cnri.reston.va.us/series.html

Robert E. Kahn of TCP/IP fame is president.

ISTF at http://www.istf.org has been developed from ISOC to deal with
societal issues. 

For all these organizations databases might be something they are
interested in.
