What's the best way to organize my research for a big proposal and presentation?

I've been out of college for about six years now, so I'm not really up-to-date on how the kids are managing their big thesis papers and such -- or if there even is anything they're doing different besides using a big notebook!
I've been hired on a consulting job to write what basically amounts to a grant proposal. The project will require me to do a LOT of research over the course of a month, and then formulate a pretty text-heavy proposal and presentation.
I'm comfortable doing the writing with Word, and the presentation in PPT or Prezi. But I need something that will help me with the research end of this. I need it to be cross-referencing, easily organized, able to handle a lot of disparate notes, and maybe even handle references.
I've considered something like a MediaWiki installation, but I'm wondering if there are any other options I should think about?
