Requires the latest version of Flash Player.



The presenters are co-authors of What Drives Foundation Expenses and Compensation? Results of a Three Year Study, issued jointly by the Foundation Center, the Urban Institute, and GuideStar. In this program, they present findings from the report, which looks at characteristics and activities of the 10,000 largest grantmaking foundations and documents how differences in these factors affect foundations' spending patterns. Elan David Garonzik of the ELMA Philanthropies Services and Barron M. Tenny of the Ford Foundation provide commentary on the implications of the findings.

The report presents final results from the Foundation Expenses and Compensation Project, the first large-scale, long-term, systematic study of independent, corporate, and community foundations' expense and compensation patterns. Download the full report (561KB, PDF) or read the highlights (90KB, PDF).

The Foundation Expenses and Compensation Project was made possible through major grants from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and the Ford Foundation and through additional support from the California HealthCare Foundation, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Rockefeller Foundation.
