Get on the Map!

GET ON THE MAP and GIVE SMARTER!

Get on the Map is an exciting data-sharing initiative designed to dramatically improve the quality and availability of giving data for our region. Put your grantmaking in context to gain insights that will transform your giving.

Imagine real-time answers to questions like: 

  • How are others serving at-risk youth?
  • Are organizations in our region receiving enough capacity building support?
  • Who else funds economic development in our rural communities?

It all starts with YOU sharing your giving data! >>

Your data will power valuable resources for your organization and our state including:

  1. Your OWN grant map—Receive an interactive map that visualizes your organization’s grantmaking. See a sample map >>

  2. Regional map—Explore CCP's custom CT Grantmaking Map to see your giving in context with your peers.

  3. Regional dashboard—Access Foundation Stats: Connecticut, our new dynamically-updating giving dashboard that visualizes our most current giving priorities, populations served, and strategies.

  4. Giving report—Reference the Connecticut Giving Report, CCP's most recent comprehensive overview of giving trends for the state.

Plus, when you share your data, you control your story. No one knows your grantmaking better than you. Tell your story, your way. And, that means, it’s good for the sector. Better information benefits everyone but it begins with YOU!  Join the community of funders sharing their data to ensure the field has the best information to act on.


HOW TO SHARE YOUR DATA

Our partner, Foundation Center (Candid), is gathering all the data for our region and structuring it for us. See their full instructions here >>
