2006 was a record-breaking year for philanthropy. More people gave more money to more causes than ever before. It was also a milestone year for the Foundation Center. We celebrated our 50th anniversary and launched our new strategic plan. Spurred by broad shifts in the philanthropic landscape, the plan centers on four strategic priorities for the coming years: expanding access to information, exploring emerging issues in philanthropy, building capacity for nonprofits, and enhancing the public's understanding of the field. To support the plan's ambitious goals, we also embarked on our first major capacitybuilding campaign in 20 years.
