• Description

The original research upon which this preview report is based was conducted by the Foundation Center. It provides a "first look" at 2001 giving together with actual aggregate 2000 giving and asset data for nearly 56,600 grantmaking foundations tracked by the Foundation Center. Giving estimates for 2001 are based on figures reported by more than 1,800 large and mid-size foundations combined with year-end fiscal indicators. Actual 2000 giving and asset figures are taken from the Foundation Center's annual surveys of larger private and community foundations, foundation Web sites, annual reports and other foundation publications, and the IRS Form 990-PF information return.
