Foundation Maps: Australia 2022

A video explaining how we are helping make our members' grantmaking activities smarter and more strategic, through rich grants data.

Candid and Philanthropy Australia have partnered together to create Foundation Maps: Australia, an interactive funding map to help visualise who is funding what and where across Australia.

How can I find who has funded a particular organisation?

How can I find who funds in a particular area of interest?

How can I find funders in a particular target group?

How can I find funders who support a specialised area of social good?

How can I find which other NFPs operate in an interest area/target group?

Why share your data?

It is good for the sector.

Effective philanthropy requires access to good quality, timely data about who is doing what and where. By sharing your data, you’re ensuring that the field has the best information to act on for collaboration, cofounding and grant strategy development.

It’s easy.

It’s easy to update your profile and share your grants data. Some software providers like Grant Toolbox and SmartyGrants and Gifts make it easier with a pre-formatted export report function that pulls all the data you need into one excel file.

Take control of your story.

People understand foundations by the grants they make. And no one knows your grantmaking better than you. Don’t leave things to interpretation – share your data to make sure your story is told in the right way.
