Understanding the data

The benchmark displays the number of businesses and organizations making donations to the district.

Because a school year includes two calendar years, such as 2014-2015, the school year on the benchmark chart is identified by the second calendar year. For example, the 2014-2015 school year is identified as 2015 on the chart.​​


Count of organizations documented by the Partnership office.
