What happens to your data?
Foundation Center aggregates and enhances data on behalf of the field so that individual organizations don't have to build their own data sets from scratch. We make foundation and grants data available in an accessible and highly visual format through our APIs and data visualization platforms, and license data that we have cleaned, coded, and standardized for use by other organizations in analysis, reports, and tools. We also build custom APIs for pulling our data into a foundation's grants management software and other applications.
This information also powers products and resources such as Foundation Directory Online, Foundation Maps, and Foundation Landscapes, which inform the work of thousands of social sector organizations and make philanthropic data easy to use. By contributing your information through Updater, you are not only helping us tell your story, but also ensuring that the sector has the most reliable data to act on.
