Tell Your Story, Your Way
In 2020, Philanthropy Massachusetts will be releasing a revamped, up-to-date
Our partner, Candid (formerly Foundation Center), is gathering data for our region.
With your data, we can create a Regional Giving Trends Dashboard for Massachusetts, providing charts and figures capturing giving trends in the region through grant data collection, visualization and analysis.
Better information benefits everyone, but it begins with you.
With this report, we will be able to:
- Feature giving trends among the Massachusetts-based community;
- Identify funding gaps within the region and understand where to focus efforts;
- Provide exclusive access to resources, including a dashboard and interactive map to learn about Massachusetts’ giving priorities, trends and strategies; and
- Present concrete data to public officials to inform systemic-level change
The Giving Massachusetts Report will include summary statistics on the Massachusetts foundation community by grantmaker type and county; trend information on changes in Massachusetts foundation number, assets, and giving since 2007 and comparisons of changes with U.S. foundations overall; lists of top funders; and text boxes featuring information on Massachusetts public foundations, individual giving in Massachusetts, and Massachusetts state government spending.
