Grants to this Grantee
for an online tool to make it faster and easier for foundations to provide grant data to the Center  
Founded over 50 years ago, the Foundation Center has a long history of connecting nonprofits to the resources they need to succeed, providing donors with data and online tools they need to be more strategic, and encouraging greater foundation transparency through information sharing. The recent growth of the number of foundations along with an increasing demand for online transparency place high demands on the center’s online data collection tools, which need significant updates. This grant will contribute toward the development of a new online tool that will reduce manual data entry, allow foundations to upload and edit their grant data and profiles, and provide high-quality data more quickly to the field of philanthropy.
