Get on the Map

GOTM “Get on the Map” with Philanthropy WV

Philanthropy WV is working with “Get on the Map” to create a private data mapping tool exclusively for Philanthropy WV members. This members-only tool is designed to help funders see what issues and organizations are being funded throughout the state of West Virginia.

The mapping tool will display grantmaking data provided by Philanthropy WV who choose to participate. Participation is entirely voluntary. The tool will be available to all Philanthropy WV members through a password-protected access page on our website.
Get on the Map is NOT a solicitation tool; rather, it is a peer-to-peer platform for Philanthropy WV members to enhance their grantmaking by understanding where grant dollars are currently going in our state.

Why participate?

Have you ever wondered what other foundations are giving in your area? Or who else is funding a particular issue in communities throughout West Virginia?

Our goal is to provide our membership with comprehensive data on who is funding what, and where in West Virginia. This virtual platform is designed to assist you in your grantmaking by showing funding trends and gaps in giving throughout the state.

It will help facilitate peer-to-peer connections with other members by showing who is funding what, and where. It will also help you identify potential opportunities to collaborate with other foundations.

How it works:

Our map will be populated with grantmaking data provided by Philanthropy WV members who volunteer to share their giving information. For this tool to be effective, we need as many of our member foundations as possible to allow us to share their data through this members-only platform.

It’s easy to participate: we have a team of experts on-hand to walk you through exporting your data from your grants management software. Once it’s exported, you can e-mail the file directly to us here at Philanthropy WV.

We know your time is valuable. As a result, our goal is to make this process quick, simple, and pain-free for our members!

Will this map be shared with the public?

No. This is a private tool available only to Philanthropy WV members. All Philanthropy WV members will be able to log in through a password-protected page on our website. The map and its contents will NOT be shared with or available to the general public.

We also have two webinar opportunities scheduled for Thursday, November 9 at 2pm to cover more information about Get on the Map.  Contact us or click here to sign up!
