Grantmaking Organizations:

Grantmaking organizations primarily fundraise for the Cause in which they are classified. Although these organizations may provide some direct programs and services, they make grants to other entities that carry out the work.

Typically, organizations within the same Cause area operate similarly to one another when it comes to their financial structure. However, we have identified a number of organizations, namely grantmakers, that are similar to one another in the way they function financially, but working across different Causes. In order to better compare their financial health, we have identified these Grantmaking organizations and compare them to each other, rather than to other organizations in their Cause.
