Geographic Mapping

GIST has developed a new online mapping tool to help illustrate to funders where investments are being made in policy, advocacy and communications work in the states, and to help foster connections across these efforts.   There are 39 national networks and nearly 1,382 state policy and advocacy groups currently represented on the map. The data for this map and a companion analysis is updated annually in the first quarter of the year. View a list of additional mapping tools here.

See below a brief video highlighting key features and illustrating how this mapping tool can be used to help shape and inform your grantmaking.
