Our Members

Philanthropic Support to Address HIV/AIDS
Funders Concerned About AIDS
The latest edition of its signature report is based on calendar year 2017 grantmaking –  captures data on more than 6,700 grants, awarded by 472 foundations in 14 countries, in an effort to identify gaps, trends and opportunities in HIV-related philanthropy. This data supports funders in their efforts to make informed decisions about where resources would make the most impact and offers a unique snapshot of the HIV/AIDS landscape to help funders align available resources with critical needs, identify new partners to help leverage and strengthen their work, build support for a new project or issue in an under-resourced country and inform efforts of grantees and partners.

Others in the Field

On Shaky Ground: Stabilizing the Financial Security of Single Women
Asset Funders Network
This new report illustrates how the women’s wealth gap is exacerbated by the racial wealth gap and goes far beyond wage inequality. It is compounded by imbalances in the tax code, the structure of employer-based benefits, the Social Security system, and market-based products and services. This new report speaks to how the wealth gap is impacting current generations and threatens the financial security of future generations.

State of Nonprofit Cybersecurity
In this inaugural report, NTEN examines the steps nonprofits are taking to develop secure practices around technology use in their nonprofits, and identify some areas where the sector can improve. It provides insights that your organization can immediately use to better secure your systems and protect your data. The report is the result of a poll of more than 250 community members about their cybersecurity practices including the policies and procedures for who and how people can access your systems, to what extent nonprofits are using technology to protect their systems, what kind of training is offered to staff and how nonprofit operations contribute to cybersecurity vulnerabilities.

Giving Circle Membership: How Collective Giving Impacts Donors
Women’s Philanthropy Institute & Collective Giving Research Group
Giving circles, which tripled in the United States from 2007-2017, help introduce new and increasingly diverse donors into the world of philanthropy. This report looks at how giving circle participation influences members and explores how established members differ from new ones.

Dynamics of Hosting Giving Circles
Women’s Philanthropy Institute & Collective Giving Research Group
This report explores the hosting experiences of community foundations and other organizations. Key findings include: contributing to a culture of philanthropy in their communities is the top reason that hosts are motivated to start or support a giving circle, followed by reaching new donors and a more diverse set of donors and the most fundamental service provided by giving circle hosts is serving as a fiscal sponsor.
