Data Driven Tools, Content-Rich Platforms

Knowledge Services

We apply our experience to the vast quantity of data we gather to address fundamental questions and create knowledge that we share through the content-rich, innovative platforms we develop for funders, nonprofits, and anyone like you interested in social change.

Who is funding what and where?
How can we know what other funders know?
How can we make the most of what we're learning?

These essential questions emerge again and again across funding areas, strategies, and geographies. We analyze and organize data with partners on custom projects to transform our information, analysis, and technology into solutions that help the social sector so you can see the world in a new light – and find the answers that are important to you.
