For each grant, the following information is supplied: name, city, and State location (or foreign country) of the recipient organization; the amount awarded; the year of grant authorization; and a description of the activity funded. Access to grant listings is through three indexes: an index of recipient names, a geographic index, and an index of subject words. Statistical tables provide information on dollar amount and number of grants according to the following breakdowns: foundation name; recipient State (or foreign country); primary subject; type of support (capital, general, research, etc.); recipient type; and population group served. Additionally, a list of the top 15 recipients by highest grant dollar amount and a list of the top 25 foundations that award grants in this subject are included with the statistics.
