• Description

The following trends analysis reviews the PRI activity of a sample of 133 leading PRI providers. A subset of the 192 foundations listed in the PRI Directory, these funders reported individual PRI transactions of $10,000 or more, which are indexed in the Foundation Center's PRI database (see box on page iii.) Since many foundations do not make PRIs on an annual basis, the trends analysis examines a cumulative two-year period. In addition to providing a more representative sample of funders, the cumulative two-year snapshot also permits comparisons with trends identified in the Center's last analysis of PRI activity, which covered the period 1993–1994.
