How do our philanthropic assets measure up?
More foundations have fewer assets.
Compared to 15 of our peer metros, the Triangle ranks 12th in number of foundations. However, our ratio of foundations with less than $1 million in assets to our foundations with more than $1 million in assets shows the shallowness of our asset base for philanthropy.
The majority of Triangle foundations have less than $1 million in assets.
Our foundations gave $679 for every resident between 2000 and 2006.
