Summary of Key Findings:

Funders (Based on 6 Funders):

  1. “Arts and culture,” “Public affairs,” “Public safety,” and the “Unknown or not classified” areas are the primary impacted, each being impacted by 15.4% of funders.
  2. Several impact areas, including “Human rights,” “Social sciences,” “Health,” “Education,” and “Community and economic development,” see an equal impact, each at 7.7%.
  3. Notably, sectors like “Agriculture, fishing, and forestry,” “Environment,” “Human services,” “Information and communications,” “Science,” “Sports and recreation,” and “Religion” receive no funding attention, each at 0%.
  4. The absence of impact in some areas could be more of a representation issue of the dataset rather than a lack of impact. It would be essential to ascertain whether this lack of funding is a broader trend or just specific to the dataset.

Nonprofit Organizations (Based on 24 Nonprofit Organizations):

  1. “Community and economic development” and “Education” are the top impact areas, both accounting for 16.4% and 14.8% respectively.
  2. Nonprofits show a notable emphasis on “Human services” (11.5%), followed by “Arts and culture” and “Health” (both at 8.2%).
  3. Several areas, including “Information and communications,” “Science,” and “Unknown or not classified,” each have a representation of 4.9%.
  4. Areas like “Agriculture, fishing, and forestry,” “Human rights,” and “Social sciences” have limited focus, each capturing nearly 1.6% and 3.3% respectively.
  5. “Religion” is entirely unrepresented among the surveyed nonprofits at 0%.


  • There’s a marked alignment between nonprofits and funders in some areas like “Education” and “Community and economic development,” yet there are notable gaps in other areas.
  • The lack of funders impacting agriculture, environment, and human services highlights potential areas where further dialogue and collaboration may be needed.
  • These findings offer a window into the priorities and potential gaps in the nonprofit and funding sectors.
