Get on the Map!

Get on the Map (GOTM) is a campaign to improve the quality, timeliness & availability of grantmaking activity across the US.

GOTM captures grantmaking data which is more detailed than reported on the Form 990. This data is available through an online mapping tool engineered by the Foundation Center, in partnership with CCP. This mapping tool, called Foundation Maps, can help identify gaps in funding. A benefit of CCP membership is access to Foundation Maps which includes all submitted grantmaking data from Connecticut.

When you share your grant information for Foundation Maps, you make a powerful contribution to two other data initiatives that CCP has undertaken with Foundation Center to tell the story of philanthropy in Connecticut. Your data also powers:

The campaign to "Get on the Map" is a partnership between the Connecticut Council for Philanthropy, the Foundation Center and the United Philanthropy Forum.
