Imagine being able to see who is funding what and where -

anywhere in the State of Delaware, with just a few clicks.

Access to accurate and up-to-date data is critical to understanding the funding landscape and ensuring that giving is as effective as it can be. In partnership with the Foundation Center and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, DGA invites our members to Get on the Map to improve the quality, timeliness, and availability of grant data — for and about funders in our region. It all starts with you—sharing your current grants data.

What’s in it for me?

When you share your data, you’ll be making a powerful contribution to Foundation Maps, a highly interactive, searchable mapping platform from Foundation Center that will be accessible to all members of the Delaware Grantmakers Association.

But, it’s all about participation. Only when our community of funders commits to sharing data will the Foundation Maps platform reach its full potential as a powerful source of accurate, up-to-date answers to questions like:

  1. Who else is funding a particular issue in our state?
  2. What organizations are tackling that issue?
  3. Who is working with specific populations in our community? In a specific region of the state?
  4. Who may be natural collaborators?
  5. Where are there gaps in funding?
  6. How much money is collectively going to specific issues or areas in our region?
  7. What are strategies at play?

Just think…What could "anytime-access” to information like this mean for your work? And what other questions would you ask to help fully inform your work?

How do I get on the map?

There are just two steps to submitting your grants data using the eGrant format.

1. Export a complete list of your most recent grants in Excel.
Most grants management software platforms offer a pre-formatted export function that pulls the necessary data into an Excel file automatically. To find video instructions for your platform, click here.

If you don’t use one of the listed software systems, simply export a complete list of your most recently-awarded grants into the Foundation Center's Excel template.

2. Email your report to egrants@foundationcenter.org.
