Foundation Giving: Yearbook of Facts and Figures on Private, Corporate, and Community Foundations.

The Foundation Center, the national non-profit service organization that collects, organizes, analyzes, and makes available to the public information on private institutional funding, has just released its annual report for 1991. The report describes a year of successful transition in a challenging environment as Thomas R. Buckman, president for 20 years, stepped down, and Sara L. Englehardt, executive vice president since 1987 and prior to that a member of the Center's board, became president.

The report spotlights the contributions the center has been making to research on the field of philanthropy. During the year, two indepth studies documenting foundation and corporate grantmaking patterns in the fields of crime and justice and aging were released. The first annual statistical yearbook, Foundation Giving: Yearbook of Facts and Figures on Private, Corporate, and Community Foundations, provides a detailed look at foundation growth and giving patterns and a review of trends in the 1980s.

The report points to dramatically increased usage of the center's four libraries during 1991, with a combined total of 58,113 visitors, representing an increase of 24 percent over the prior year. A map indicating the locations of 180 libraries in the center's cooperating collections network, which also reported increased patronage, is provided.
