Instructions for Submitting Grants Data

Grantmakers can submit grants data in an Excel file that follows simple guidelines. Grantmakers are encouraged to include as many fields as possible that correspond to those listed in our electronic grant reporting standard.

Please send your eGrant Reports to The Foundation Center's target for processing and publishing all incoming eGrant Reports is within 10 business days of receipt of data files that meet our published standards and formatting. In some cases data may take longer to process if we receive an unusually high volume of submissions at the same time. When published, this data will be searchable in our various online tools, included in our research reports and will display in the interactive maps and charts for individual foundations.
