The largest group of records is found under the title "Corporations and Foundations." Foundations and trusts are filed under the founder's surname. Large donors that funded multiple projects include the Carnegie Corporation, the Ford Foundation and the Rockefeller Foundation. Events and institutes that benefited from the same donor are listed alphabetically as subtitles under the donor.
