Columbus Survey 2010 Results: Guideposts Point to Growth

May 01, 2011
  • Description

With this report, CF Insights' aim is to share a snapshot of community foundation asset growth and activity during 2010. The findings are based on over 250 community foundation responses to the Columbus Survey as of March 2011. Participants interested in detailed 2010 results for their foundation can visit to find a wider range of comparative and longitudinal reports. CF Insights members can compare their 2010 performance to peer benchmarks in over 60 online reports. Available metrics focus on asset development, grantmaking, investment performance, and sustainability. And for those community foundations who have not yet contributed data, there is still time. We encourage you to share your 2010 results and use the resources at to create custom reports that put your own foundation's performance in context. As more foundations contribute and 990s are completed, more comparative data will be available and CF Insights will continue to build on this snapshot with analyses based on the growing data set.
