This infographic highlights key findings from our 2022 Report on Private Philanthropy, a data-based analysis of the giving and investing activity of nearly 1,000 foundations over a 24-month period.

  • Private foundations gave abundantly in 2021 as they continued to assist with pandemic recovery efforts, revisited their core missions and responded to emerging needs.
  • There was an increase in the total dollars given with a corresponding decrease in the number of grants awarded, suggesting a shift from the 2020 focus on helping as many recipients as possible to having a more targeted impact.
  • Concepts illustrated include grantmaking trends, how foundations differ by asset level and how aid was distributed by charitable sector.
