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.
