Mission:

To improve the quality, timeliness, and availability of rich grant data.  

Fast Facts:
  • Get on the Map captures grantmaking data which is more detailed than what is generally reported on the Form 990. This data will be available through an online mapping tool engineered by the Foundation Center.  
  • As a benefit of your GCG Membership, your organization will receive access to Foundation Maps; which will include all submitted grantmaking data from Missouri.
  • The campaign to Get on the Map is a partnership between the Gateway Center for Giving, the Foundation Center and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers.
If I share my data, what’s in it for me? 
When you share your data, you’ll be making a powerful contribution to Foundation Maps, a highly interactive, searchable mapping platform from the Foundation Center that will be accessible to all Gateway Center for Giving Members.  

But, it’s all about participation. Only when our community of funders commits to sharing data will the Foundation Maps platform reach its full potential as a powerful source of accurate, up-to-date answers to questions like…  
  1. Who else is funding a particular issue in our region? 
  2. What organizations are tackling that issue? 
  3. Who is working with specific populations in our community? 
  4. Who may be natural collaborators? 
  5. Where are there gaps in funding? 
  6. How much money is collectively going to specific issues or areas in our region? 
  7. What are strategies at play?   
How do I submit grants data?
There are just two steps to submitting your grants data using the eGrant format.  
  1. Export a complete list of your most recent grants in Excel. 
    • Most grants management software platforms offer a pre-formatted export function that pulls the necessary data into an Excel file automatically. To find instructions for your platform, click here.  
    • If you don’t use one of the listed software systems, simply export a complete list of your most recently-awarded grants into the Excel template.
  2. Email your report to egrants@foundationcenter.org.   
    • Please indicate your regional association (Gateway Center for Giving) in the subject line of your email.
      • Example: Subject: [Organization name] eGrant Report - Gateway Center for Giving
Which data fields do I need to provide?
The chart below outlines all of the fields included in the eReporting standard and highlights those that are required and most preferred.  


As a thank you for sharing your data, you’ll also get access to a custom version of Foundation Maps that reflects your individual organization’s grantmaking activity.
Once you see it, picture it populated with the data from hundreds of your fellow funders as well. Starting to see the possibilities? Get on the Map today! Click here for more information and instructions on how to share your data.
