Sharing Board-Level Investment Report to advance Open Data
The Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is continuing its leadership in open government, by now making the analysis of its grantmaking prepared for the OTF Board of Directors publically available.
The newly available Investment Summary Report for OTF’s fiscal year 2015-2016 provides analysis of OTF’s investments in communities across Ontario since the launch of its new Investment Strategy. Last year, we became the first Canadian funder to release our raw grant data as open data. Because not everyone in the sector will be able to analyze it for themselves, we are continuing our leadership by making our board-level analysis of that grant data available to the public, also under an open license.
OTF can use our improved ability for data analysis gained by our recent shift to an outcome-based investment strategy to help the sector and all Ontarians understand the impact of our investments in communities, and help us all to learn and improve.
OTF is committed to collaborating with other funders to develop new ways to share knowledge and measure impact for the benefit of the sector - and this release will also support that goal.
