Overview
In 2013, the Hewlett Foundation, alongside seven other foundation funding partners, partnered with Foundation Center to develop an online, interactive data visualization tool to map "who is funding whom to do what" in the field of U.S. democracy. The tool is intended to provide a clearer picture of what issue areas and organizations other foundations are supporting, thereby helping to improve philanthropic investment and coordination in this growing field. The beta version was launched in June 2014. Over the next year, this grant will support the following activities: (a) ongoing data refreshes, (b) data review and quality assurance, (c) technical maintenance on the new platform, and (d) webinars to inform grantees.
