The campaign to “Get on the Map” is a partnership between Philanthropy Network Greater Philadelphia, the Foundation Center and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, and has as its mission to improve the quality, timeliness, and availability of rich grant data—for and about funders in our region.
And it all starts with YOU — sharing your current giving data by becoming a Foundation Center eReporter.
If I share my data, what’s in it for me?
When you share your data, you’ll be making a powerful contribution to Foundation Maps, a highly interactive, searchable mapping platform from Foundation Center that will be customized and accessible to all Philanthropy Network members.
But, it’s all about participation. Only when our community of funders commits to sharing data will the Foundation Maps platform reach its full potential as a powerful source of accurate, up-to-date answers to questions like…
1. Who else is funding a particular issue in our region?
2. What organizations are tackling that issue?
3. Who is working with specific populations in our community?
4. Who may be natural collaborators?
5. Where are there gaps in funding?
6. How much money is collectively going to specific issues or areas in our region?
Just think…What could “anytime-access” to information like this mean for your work?
As a special thank you for sharing your data, you’ll also get access to a custom version of Foundation Maps that reflects your individual organization’s grantmaking activity. Once
you see it, picture it populated with the data from hundreds of your
fellow funders as well. Starting to see the possibilities?
How do I get on the map?
It's easy! There are just two simple steps to submitting your grants data using the eGrant format.
1. EXPORT a complete list of your most recent grants in Excel.
»» If you use grants management software, most platforms offer a pre-formatted export function that pulls the necessary data into an Excel file automatically. To find video instructions for your platform, click here.
»» If you don’t use one of the listed software systems, simply export a complete list of your most recently-awarded grants into our Excel template.
