Member Giving and Data

Publication date: 
July, 2022

To promote transparency and increase awareness of the impact of the Pennsylvania philanthropy community, GWP has partnered with Foundation Center to bring top-line data about the philanthropy landscape to regional foundations, nonprofits, policymakers, and mediaThis data-sharing initiative is designed to dramatically improve the quality and availability of giving data for our region. Put your grantmaking in context to gain insights that will transform your giving.

Imagine real-time answers to questions like:  
•    How are others serving at-risk youth? 
•    Are organizations in our region receiving enough capacity building support? 
•    Who else funds economic development in our rural communities?

Does the data look incomplete? GRANTMAKERS: SHARE YOUR DATA!

When you share your data, you control your story. No one knows your grantmaking better than you. Tell your story, your way. And, that means, it’s good for the sector. Better information benefits everyone but it begins with YOU!  Join the community of funders sharing their data to ensure the field has the best information to act on.  It is important to note that the most complete data is shown under 2015, as data for the last two years is still being collected by Foundation Center. Foundations can contribute their most recent grants data easily, and in doing so, strengthen the accuracy of this overall picture of Pennsylvania philanthropy.

The dashboard represents the latest available grants data from the Internal Revenue Service and a pool of foundations who directly share their giving information with Foundation Center. Pennsylvania foundations can learn more about how to submit their data here. (It’s the same process as adding your data to Foundation Maps!)
