Building the global data platform for philanthropy is part of the Foundation Center's 2020 strategic plan. We are building global partnerships to provide data and knowledge to grantmakers, nonprofits, NGOs, researchers, and the public. News about our products and services is available here.
Current Project: SDGfunders
SDGfunders is a web portal under development for the Post-2015 Partnership Platform for Philanthropy to track philanthropy's contributions to the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and future Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The portal facilitates effective collaboration and strategic decision-making for philanthropic and multilateral organizations funding international development work and encourages innovative partnerships encompassing a wide variety of stakeholders. For more information about this project in the lead up to the launch of SDGfunders.org, please visit our interim website SDGfunders: Behind the Scenes. This site provides key updates, documents, and photos related to the project in addition to some background points about the partnership and SDGfunders.org web platform.
Foundation Center's International Data Relations team conducts interviews with regional experts, provide research, and manage complex data to provide the most complete picture possible of the global philanthropic landscape.
