Learn more about the CDP’s tools for Grantmakers

Online Access for Participating Grantmakers

Sample applicant pool
Grantmaker CDP is CDP’s new online interface for participating grantmakers. Through Grantmaker CDP, funders now have hands-on access to their applicants’ CDP data. They can log in for instant access to the CDP Funder Reports that their applicants have provided as part of an application or reporting deadline, and view the full Data Profiles for the fiscal years included in their Funder Reports – complete with the same CDP line-item definitions their applicants saw when filling out the form.

Powerful Analytic Reports

Trend Report

Grantmaker CDP also gives grantmakers access to the same powerful trend and comparison reporting features that arts and cultural organizations have been using to inform their strategic planning.

Grantmakers who need to demonstrate the impact of their dollars can now quickly and easily pull a personnel report to show the total number of jobs that their applicants and grantees create, or run a program activity report to view the total number of people who attended their grantees’ events for free in the past year.

Grantmaker CDP lets funders run trend reports to see how their applicants or grantees are faring over time, as well as comparison reports, to compare the needs of their applicant pool to a group of similar organizations across the country. Ultimately, Grantmaker CDP will help funders to better support the needs of the arts and cultural sector, by giving them new tools for their strategic planning and program evaluation.
