Transparency in Philanthropy: GlassPockets

Foundations are using the internet like never before to make their interests and activities accessible to the public. Through GlassPockets,the Foundation Center and its partners are working to inspire private foundations to greater openness in their communications and increase understanding of best practices in foundation transparency and accountability in an online world.

GlassPockets features include:
  • Grantsfire RSS feed that allows foundations to submit and post grant data electronically in near real-time.
  • Facts & Trends in Philanthropy illustrated with easy to understand and interactive charts and graphs.
  • Philanthropy at Work tracks the news, grants, commentary, and case studies initiated or funded by grantmaking institutions in select subject areas.
  • Foundation Transparency 2.0 allows you to see how, through their web sites and other online communications vehicles, foundations are working to make their operations more transparent.
