In 2011 Grantmakers for Education (GFE) partnered with the Monitor Institute to develop the K-12 Education Strategy Landscape Tool—an asset mapping tool that used interactive data visualization to provide a clear picture of the who, what, where, and when of education grantmaking. The prototype launched in January of 2012 with initial support from the Rockefeller Foundation, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the Nellie Mae Education Foundation. Over a dozen funders participated in the launch by sharing their grantmaking data.
