California Foundation Data—Now Available At-a-Glance
Grantseekers and grantmakers can enhance their philanthropic impact with current, authoritative data. Foundation Center’s new California Foundation Stats dashboard is a free, online tool that allows anyone to access hundreds of charts and tables on the size, scope, and giving priorities of California and non-local foundations, lists of top funders by region and issue area, and trends in funding specific support strategies and population groups.
Free Webinar: What Story Does Your 990 Tell about Your Foundation?
What does your foundation’s 990 say about the organization? Glasspockets recently partnered with the Communications Network to offer an insightful webinar on the Form 990’s potential risks and vulnerabilities, as well as how to use Form 990 to share the work of your organization.
The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly
What Story Does your 990 Tell about your Foundation?
The IRS now releases 990s as machine-readable, open data, making it easy for anyone to collect data, compare, and make judgments about your foundation's work - all without your input. Watch this webinar to learn about the challenges facing foundations, and the opportunities to better share your institution's work.

Talking About Transparency
What We're Tracking
Who Has Glass Pockets?
We can help your foundation have glass pockets.
Foundation Transparency 2.0
We collect data on how foundations are communicating online.
Foundations are making grant information available to the public in an open format.
Eye on the Giving Pledge
We bring greater transparency to the Giving Pledge.
How Are Foundations Being Transparent in a Digital World?
Through their work, foundations produce deep knowledge about successful strategies and lessons learned. We can share your knowledge on IssueLab.
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.
