As temperatures rise and summer descends, tracking season is upon us! Each summer we begin our outreach campaign to request LGBTQ grantmaking data from hundreds of funders across the U.S., compiling the data set that will form the bedrock of our annual Tracking Report series. Our most recent edition of the report, covering calendar year 2016 analyzed 6,032 grants from 348 foundations. This report would not be possible without the collaboration of grantmakers like you! Can you help us report on even more grants in our next edition of the report?
If your foundation has made any grants supporting organizations or programs that specifically focus on an LGBTQ issue in the calendar-year 2017, we would love to hear from you! Specifically, we are requesting:
As you prepare your information, please note:
The data you provide will be invaluable not only for our annual tracking report, but also for our other special reports including our biennial Global Resources Report produced in partnership with Global Philanthropy Project (GPP).
If your foundation made any grants that meet the above criteria in 2017, we would love to hear from you! You can download a sample Excel template here to assist you with your reporting, or you can choose to submit your grants data in a format more convenient for you. From the information you provide, each grant will be further classified.
Please submit data by July 20th, 2018 via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We cannot guarantee that submissions received after that date will be included in the report.
Once again, we thank all the people who help make our research possible. You can contact us with any research related questions or ideas – we always love to hear from you!
