Custom Database Searches
Our database contains information on U.S. private and community foundations plus corporate giving programs and on grants of $10,000 or more awarded by more than 1,000 of the largest foundations annually. We can perform database searches for grantmakers to assess philanthropic giving in a specific region or state, map funding patterns, or locate grantmakers active in a particular field.
