Foundation Giving in Erie and Niagara Counties
Assessing how foundation dollars are distributed in the region
The Western New York Grantmakers Association commissioned the institute to assess how foundation dollars are distributed in the region. The institute developed a profile of giving by 150 of the most active foundations in the eight counties of Western New York. This one-year snapshot of giving by the region’s philanthropic community is intended to decipher patterns in giving across recipient sectors, grant size and the geographic distribution of grants.
