Foundation Center – Grantsfire agreement brings ‘real time grants information’ a step closer

Grantsfire, a web-based system which takes recently published grants information from foundation websites or direct feeds, has entered into an agreement with the US-based Foundation Center to augment the Center’s current sources of data. Funded in part by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Grantsfire was developed to share grants knowledge through an open, machine-readable, web-based ‘hGrants’ format which is easy to use. It will become part of the Foundation Center’s existing electronic grant reporting system, used by 450 foundations throughout the world. ‘The Grantsfire technology gets us one step closer to having real-time grants information,’ said Foundation Center president Bradford Smith. ‘This is central to our long-standing mission of increasing transparency so that people can see exactly what foundations are doing on the issues about which they care most.’
