• Description

The original research upon which this preview report is based was conducted by the Foundation Center. It provides a "first look" at 2000 giving together with actual aggregate 1999 giving and asset data for the more than 50,000 grantmaking foundations tracked by the Foundation Center. Giving estimates for 2000 are based on figures reported by 1,660 large and mid-size foundations combined with year-end fiscal indicators. Actual 1999 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.
