Access to accurate, up-to-date grantmaking data is critical to understanding the funding landscape and ensuring that your giving is as effective as it can be.

Imagine being able to see who is funding what and where--anywhere, anytime, and with just a few clicks.
The campaign to "Get on the Map" is a partnership between the Maine Philanthropy Center, the Foundation Center, and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers. The goal is to improve the quality, timeliness, and availability of rich grants data. And if we all get on the map together, we all benefit from the most accurate, current, and detailed information available.
What's in it for me?
When you share your data, you'll be making a powerful contribution to a highly interactive, searchable mapping platform online, accessible to all funder members of the Maine Philanthropy Center.
And it's all about participation. Only when our community of funders pledges to "Get on the Map" will the map of Maine reach its full potential as a powerful source of accurate, up-to-date answers to questions like:
- Who else is funding a particular issue in our region?
- What organizations are tackling that issue?
- Who is working with specific populations in our community?
- Who may be natural collaborators?
- Where are there gaps in funding?
- How much money is going to specific issues or areas in Maine?
