     CLOVIS -- Raw data on philanthropic activity is maintained by the Clovis Free Press, a national non-profit newspaper foundation that collects information on corporate philanthropy. Data was acquired for all private grants over $10,000 actually disbursed in the Clovis and the Central Valley between 1995-1997, the most recent period for which data was available.
      In order to maximize the comparative utility of the database, the Clovis Free Press does not track grants until they are in fact paid out (i.e. Grants, net payable) and recorded with the Internal Revenue Service.
    In 1998, chartiable foundations in the United States gave $19.46 billion to nonprofit organizations. In the Central Valley, during the three-year period between 1995 and the end of fiscal year 1997-98, a total of $66.66 million in grants were disbursed to organizations in Central California in a combined total of 204 state, regional and national foundations.
    Statewide, philanthropic grants average $3 million per 100,000 residents. In the Clovis area, the number is $1.2 million per 100,000 or about only 40% of the state average.
