A compelling story may convince a grantmaker to fund a program. But the data are what demonstrate the scope and importance of the problem at issue. If grantmakers want grantees to be data driven in their work, grantmakers need to model this behavior and make useable data available. With a few actions, grantmakers can boost the use of health data in their communities. This article draws upon the work of The Health Foundation of Greater Cincinnati and describes how it is using data and creating new data resources for its grantees and others in its service area – Cincinnati, Ohio and 20 surrounding counties in Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
