In response to broad audience demand, the Foundation Center has created this spectacular interactive mapping tool.  Designed for all persons interested in the impact of philanthropy around the world, Philanthropy In/Sight combines rich data on grantmakers and their grants with familiar Google maps to tell the story of philanthropy. 

Choosing from a wide range of customization options, users can quickly create maps that reveal patterns of giving and funding relationships as never before. Plus, users can overlay grant data with their choice of over 150 demographic, socio-economic, and other data sets to create compelling visual portraits showing where philanthropy has made an impact and where opportunities exist to fill critical needs.

Research, identify, plot, map, assess, compare--with unprecedented insight.  Philanthropy In/Sight is available at Parkway Central Library; please visit the Regional Foundation Center for assistance.
