About Foundation Maps
Foundation Maps has replaced the Philanthropy In/Sight mapping application.
Foundation Maps is Foundation Center’s new data visualization platform that brings to life data about U.S. and global philanthropy through extensive mapping, charting, and analytic capabilities. Foundation Maps is a major step forward in Foundation Center’s commitment to providing resources that lead to more transparent, effective, and collaborative philanthropy.
Foundation Maps was developed by a cross-functional team at the Foundation Center and based upon dozens of user experience interviews to create functionality that addresses the needs of funders, nonprofits, philanthropy networks, consultants, and researchers.
Foundation Maps visualizes grantmaker, grant recipient, and grants data through a variety of filters and views.
The Foundation Maps data set includes foundation funding from 2006 to present in support of all subject areas. When such information is available, grants are organized by population served and type of support. At launch, this included information on more than 3 million grants totaling more than $220 billion. The data set is updated weekly as new data becomes available.
