Better Data for:

Imagine if you had …

  • a comprehensive picture of who is most in need
  • easy access to information about other funders that work with nonprofits you are considering
  • tools to make it easy to connect and collaborate with other funders that serve a similar cause
  • a broader understanding for what has already been tried and what worked

eReporting Program

How the Foundation Center collects accurate,timely and detailed grants information directly from foundations.

  • Two formats :
  • eGrant: Foundations email FC an excel spreadsheet with 28 fields of information.
  • hGrant: A feed that publishes grants information directly to a website where FC gathers it daily. This is the technology behind the Reporting Commitment.
