• Description

This report builds on the Environmental Grantmakers Association's (EGA) grant research from 2007 to 2013, deepening our understanding of trends and gaps in environmental philanthropy. Analyzing grant data from the supply side of funding within the environment movement, the Tracking the Field report provides an avenue for EGA members to see where their grantmaking fits into the larger environmental movement and how they can optimize their grant dollars to be more strategic and effective. Tracking the Field: Volume 5 analyzes 66,340 grants, totaling more than $6.8 billion between 2007 and 2013. With six grant years of data, we are able to see the impact of outside influences on environmental philanthropy in addition to shifts within the field.
