How Are Foundations Being Transparent in a Digital World?

  • Sharing Knowledge

    Through their work, foundations produce deep knowledge about successful strategies and lessons learned. We can share your knowledge on IssueLab.

  • Building Websites

    Fewer than 10% of U.S. foundations have a website. Having a website is easy and is the first step to online transparency. We can help with Foundation Websites.

  • Sharing Grants Data

    Sharing your grants data with us electronically helps the public understand your work. We make it easy with the Reporting Commitment and e-grant reporting.
