Washington Foundations

Summary Of DataBook & Software Features:

The Washington Foundation DataBook & Software includes contact and asset information on all 2,000+ Washington foundations, with major profiles of the 543 largest grantmaking foundations in the state. Completely updated with the latest financial and grants data. All new research.
MAJOR PROFILES include bar charts showing each profiled foundation’s aggregate grant dollars by activity and also by grantee location, giving an instant picture of What and Where the Foundation awards grants. Below the charts are ALL the Foundation’s grants, grouped by activity. More than 20,000 individual grants are included in the DataBook and software. See Sample page link.
ALL WASHINGTON FOUNDATIONS— brief contact and fiscal information is included on more than 2,000 Washington foundations, including EIN, name, address, city, state, ZIP, fiscal year, assets, and phone (if provided).The software package includes a .pdf copy of the DataBook with standard book layout AND searchable databases of the major profiled foundations and all of their grants. A common search for all the Youth grants greater or equal to $1,000 in Tacoma would take less than a minute with the software database…and capture the results as a pre formatted text report. Keep notes on each foundation; open web pages without typing out long URLs (do you really want to type “www.rei.com/stewardship/community/non-profit-partnerships-and-grants.html?”).
