Grantmakers.io - A Community Project

The Grantmakers.io project is spread across two repos:

  1. Foundation Search (this repo)
  2. Foundation Profiles

Goal

Demonstrate how open source technologies + hosted microservices can be leveraged to minimize the cost of hosting and sharing philanthropic data.

Grantmakers.io was built at zero cost and has zero ongoing costs.

Search

The search functionality is fully hosted by Algolia. See /assets/js/search-profiles.js.

Data

All data is pulled directly from machine-readable IRS Form 990PF. These files are hosted publicly by Amazon Web Services and controlled by the IRS.

Download link for the normalized data we sync with Algolia:
JSON | 166MB

Download link for the entire MongoDB 990PF database (includes index data, filing data, and normalized data:
BSON | 5GB - please email us for a link

To develop your own database, we've published our Node + MongoDB scripts. Check out the Nonprofit Open Data Collective or do a search on Github if you prefer other platforms.

Feature Requests

If you have a question, feature request, find a bug, or just want to say hi, please open an issue on GitHub.

Roadmap

Grantmakers.io is developed in the open and uses Github Issues at its core. To view the prioritized list across all repos, simply download the Zenhub browser extension.
