Since 2006, Philanthropy Northwest has published biennial reports on grantmaking trends for our region -- Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming -- based on the most recent data available from a combination of our membership network, Form 990s and intermediaries. These reports aim to reflect our collective giving, encourage more conversations and help inform your strategies.

For this sixth edition of Trends in Northwest Giving, we are presenting this report in collaboration with Foundation Center, which collects grants data directly from organizations across the Northwest and nationwide. This partnership enables us to tell a story based on a larger pool of funders, in three parts: key findings, based on a snapshot of $1.8 billion granted to our region by more than 4,000 funders in 2014; trends over time, based on a subset of 1,388 funders that reported data for both 2012 and 2014; and state-by-state variations.
