Highlights of the Foundation Center's 2001 Study: California Foundations - A Profile of the State's Grantmaking Community

January 1, 2001

California Foundations: A Profile of the State's Grantmaking Community provides the most comprehensive analysis to date of private and community foundations in California. The report is divided into two major components. The first section documents the size, scope, and giving patterns of the California foundation community and compares them with national trends. It also includes an examination of giving by national funders in California. The second section presents separate "statistical profiles" illustrating the dimensions and growth of foundation communities in five selected California metropolitan areas—Los Angeles, Oakland, San Diego, San Francisco, and San Jose. This report was developed in collaboration with the Center on Philanthropy and Public Policy at the University of Southern California.
