About this grant
This grant provides startup support to Community Foundation Insights, a project of FSG Social Impact Advisors. The aim of the project is to strengthen the sustainability and leadership of community foundations by collecting, analyzing, benchmarking, and providing online access to financial and operational data from community foundations across the country; identifying and providing "how-to" manuals on best practices; conducting fieldwide research; and providing technical assistance to smaller community foundations. Community Foundation Insights has the full support of the Community Foundation Leadership Team of the Council on Foundations and a total of 22 community foundations of all sizes have committed funds for startup costs. The project subsequently is expected to become financially self-sustaining through modest annual subscription fees.
