International Grantmaking III

An Update on U.S. Foundation Trends (3rd Edition)

The Foundation Center

Prepared in cooperation with the Council on Foundations as an update to the 2000 International Grantmaking II study, this report examines perspectives on the post-9/11 funding climate and the current outlook for the field based on a 2004 survey of more than 60 leading U.S. international grantmakers.

It also documents trends in international giving based on the grants of over 600 larger U.S. foundations. In particular, the study analyzes shifts in giving priorities, countries/regions targeted for support, and the impact of new large funders.
