    NEW! Foundation Mapsfm_3.png

    We are pleased to now offer a new online tool in our core collection. Foundation Maps is Foundation Center’s new interactive mapping tool that brings philanthropy data to life so you can see who is funding what and where. Some of the most exciting features include:

    • Map View displays with colored bubbles for foundations and recipients.
    • Charts show funding trends and allow comparisons of funding by subject areas over time.
    • Funding pathways visually reveals networked relationships between funders and recipients. Start with a recipient or foundation and view multiple layers of funding.
    • U.S. Demographic overlays add a rich dimension to the maps, demonstrating the need for funding in a region or subject area.

    Next time you are in the Library, search your nonprofit and find out its “family tree” of funding.
