In 2008, IGA partnered with the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University to produce an in-depth study of foundation grantmaking in Indiana. Foundation Grantmaking in Indiana examines giving by 1,279 private, corporate and community foundations.

In addition to a statewide report, the Center prepared regional giving analyses for eight regions defined by IGA. Each regional analysis shows: average and median grant amounts, allocation of grant dollars by type of recipient (education, human services, health, etc.), percentage of grantmaking by type of funder (private, corporate, community), and percentage of grant dollars remaining in the state.
