Foundation Giving for Nonprofit and Philanthropic Infrastructure 2004‐2012

Mar 1, 2015
The Hewlett Foundation asked Foundation Center to develop a framework for tracking U.S. foundation support globally for nonprofit and philanthropic infrastructure organizations and services, from operating support for nonprofit associations to project support for grantmaker networks to research support for academic institutions studying the sector. The goals of this undertaking included:
  • Documenting how funding is distributed among key organization types in the nonprofit and philanthropic infrastructure field; and
  • Tracking how funding for the field has changed over time, both within the nonprofit and philanthropic infrastructure field and compared to U.S. foundation giving overall.
This analysis spans nine years of foundation funding for nonprofit and philanthropic infrastructure from 2004 to 2012, encompassing 717 different funders and 12,200 grants. It could be replicated in the future to continue to track trends over time.
