What Data Can Inform Your Efforts?
Foundation Center aggregates and enhances data on behalf of the field, so that individual organizations don't have to build their own data sets from scratch. We offer a great deal of foundation and grants data in an open, free, and highly visual format through our APIs and data visualization platforms. We license data that we have cleaned, coded, and standardized for use by other organizations for analysis, reports, and tools. We also build custom APIs for pulling our data into a foundation's grants management software and other applications.
