Foundation Maps: Australia

Get on the Map – with Foundation Maps: Australia!

Philanthropy Australia invites all funders to supply their grant data for Foundation Maps: Australia (FMA). FMA graphically maps grants – so anyone can see who funds what and where in Australia for the first time!

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.

Its easy
Updater makes it easy to update your profile and share your grants data. Some software providers like SmartyGrants & 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.
