2024 State of Philanthropy Tech Survey

TAG Reports

Published July 1, 2024

Every two years, the Technology Association of Grantmakers (TAG) conducts its preeminent philanthropy tech survey to understand the policies, practices, and perceptions within the grantmaking community. As the only comprehensive survey focused on technology in philanthropy, it offers valuable insights into how grantmaking organizations are leveraging technology to advance their missions, deepen their impact and manage risk.

Topics covered, and key insights reported on, include:

  • IT Budget: Analysis of spending trends and investment priorities
  • IT Staffing: Workforce composition, recruitment, and retention
  • Systems Selection: Preferences for grant management systems, donor and grantee portals, impact measurement, and more
  • Evolving Trends: How the funder community is managing challenges and leading innovation in areas like cybersecurity, hybrid-work, artificial intelligence, and data governance
