Product update: New foundation categories

Published May 24, 2016

New categories let you easily find normal grantmaking foundations (versus private foundations)

You can now quickly find foundation-like organizations in Cause IQ! You'd think this would be the easiest thing in the world to do, but because of the way the IRS classifies organizations (i.e., there is no classification for normal foundations, only private foundations), Cause IQ had to conduct original research and develop indicators for foundation-like organizations.

To find all grant-making organizations and foundations in Cause IQ, add the "Grantmaking foundation" category option in the "Categories" filter, found in the "Categories and characteristics" section of the Advanced search tab.

You may have to refresh your web browser for the new category to show up.
