Our Founder

Alf Gracombe established GivingData in 2010 to help foundations organize and visualize their grantmaking data to better inform their decisions. Initially built as a data overlay to an existing grants management system (GMS), GivingData has evolved into a fully-featured, purpose-built grantmaking platform. Today, GivingData is the fastest-growing GMS for private and independent foundations. It empowers them to collect and utilize data, collaborate with their nonprofit partners, and engage with a community of grantmakers dedicated to advancing the effectiveness and impact of the philanthropic sector.
