Video prepared for members of Indiana Philanthropy Alliance, but good, short explanation of Get on the Map campaign.

Ready, Set, “Get on the Map!”

Imagine being able to see who is funding what and where—anywhere in our region, anytime, and with just a few clicks. What if you had a map of near real-time data about giving across California on an interactive mapping platform? Imagine if you could identify gaps in funding and natural collaborators—how would you adjust your strategy?

Join this Foundation Center webinar to learn about a new mapping tool that is currently in development and how you can get your grant data on the map.

Who Wants to Put New Mexico on the Map?

Access to accurate, up-to-date grantmaking data is critical to understanding the funding landscape and ensuring that your giving is as effective as it can be. The campaign to “Get on the Map” aims to improve the quality, timeliness, and availability of rich grant data—for and about funders in New Mexico. Come learn about how we may join this national movement and what is needed from you to put New Mexico on the Map!

Imagine being able to see who is funding what and where—anywhere in our region, anytime, and with just a few clicks. What if you had a map of near real-time data about giving across West Virginia on an interactive mapping platform? Imagine if you could identify gaps in funding and natural collaborators—how would you adjust your strategy? Good news! Maps like these are in the works thanks to the good people at the Foundation Center. The Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers and 20 regional associations around the country are teaming up with Foundation Center to encourage as many foundations to participate in this national “Get on the Map” campaign and help develop Foundation Maps, a highly interactive, searchable mapping tool that contains timely and accurate data on grantmaking. The mapping tool will help visualize needs and identify gaps in funding, and answer questions such as:

  • Who else is funding a particular issue in our region?
  • What organizations are tackling that issue?
  • Who is working with specific populations in our community?
  • Who may be natural collaborators?
  • Where are there gaps in funding?
  • How much money is collectively going to specific issues or areas in our region?
  • What are strategies at play?
