Understanding Philanthropy’s Role in U.S. Democracy

Wed, December 2, 2015,
10:00am to 11:00am PST

Is your organization funding or working to strengthen American democracy? You’ve probably raised questions such as who else is funding the issues I care about in my state, how do I tap into available resources to increase my impact, and what would a map of my network look like? Foundation Center launched a new data visualization platform for funders, nonprofits, journalists, and anyone interested in understanding philanthropy’s role in U.S. democracy that can help answer those questions and more. Join us for a look at how Foundation Funding for U.S. Democracy can help funders and grantseeking nonprofits broaden their knowledge of the funding landscape, identify additional funding sources, and understand where their philanthropic dollars can have the most impact.
