Top 100 U.S. Foundations by Total Giving

In Major Foundations Making Grants in Health, Major Philanthropic Foundations on July 28, 2009 at 9:46 pm

Following are the 100 largest U. S. grantmaking foundations ranked by total giving, based on the most current audited financial data in the Foundation Center’s database as of June 25, 2009, according to the Foundation Center

Total giving figures include grants, scholarships, employee matching gifts, and other amounts reported as “grants and contributions paid during the year” on the 990-PF tax form, the Foundation Center said.

Total giving does not include all qualifying distributions under the tax law, e.g., loans, program-related investments, and program or other administrative expenses.

Fiscal records will be updated when more recent audited financial information is obtained, said the center.
