Education and health remained the top priorities of private and community foundations included in the Foundation Center's grants sample in 2005. Support for most major subject areas grew, with international affairs and the environment posting the largest gains. By type of support, the share of foundation grant dollars allocated for capital projects rose to 18.5 percent, following five consecutive years of decline. These findings are based on all grants of $10,000 or more awarded by 1,154 of the largest foundations. The $16.4 billion awarded by the sampled funders represents roughly half of overall U.S. foundation giving. This "Preview" highlights key patterns of giving in 2005 by subject area, type of support, population group, geographic focus, and foundation type. A full analysis was published in Foundation Giving Trends: Update on Funding Priorities in February 2007.
