The Foundation Reporting Study

We surveyed foundations and charitable trusts around the country to learn what they look for in organizations they are considering funding. This study reveals the answers to common questions regarding funder reporting requirements and trends. 


ARCHS: A Funder's Perspective

Area Resources for Community and Human Services (ARCHS) was developed 20 years ago with the purpose of bridging federal/state funding with local resources to improve the lives of vulnerable children and families in St. Louis, Missouri. From its humble beginnings as an intermediary funder, the leaders of ARCHS knew they wanted to not only provide dollars to fund services but also be active participants in the service delivery process. As the organization has grown and developed over time so has its funding vision.


Analysis of Funder Preferences

In this piece, we dig deeper into the information provided in the Foundation Research Study, with analysis and best practices for reporting, data collection, and outcomes management.


Grant Application Template

The Grant Application Template takes the information we've learned from funders and gives you a pre-filled sample template for framing answers when applying for grants. By utilizing data, you'll be able to tell impactful stories and build effective applications.
