GrantAdvisor crowdsources grantmaker information for nonprofits seeking funding from U.S. sources. Designed to encourage more productive philanthropy and facilitate open dialogue, GrantAdvisor allows anyone in the nonprofit community to anonymously share their first-hand experiences working with funders through authentic, real-time reviews and comments.

Data on funders is posted publicly after they have received 5 reviews. At that point, foundations can post responses to the reviews. The funders with the most reviews are featured above. Click Funder Profiles to see the full list of funders live on the site.

GrantAdvisor launched in June of 2017, and we are targeting California and Minnesota for marketing, but we encourage everyone to write reviews, regardless of location. We’re hoping to expand to new partners and regions in 2018.

GrantAdvisor is a brilliant combination of an advice source for grantseekers and a feedback loop to foundations, which has been a missing link in the modern history of philanthropy.
