Over 50 organisations are publishing grants data using the 360Giving Standard. This means they are sharing information about their grantmaking in a way which allows others to use it easily and for free. 360Giving is supporting the development of tools and projects that help people to find and use this data.
Beehive is a free, online tool which enables charities to find potential funding ‘matches’ easily online. It helps address the inefficiency inherent in the grant application process, for both grantmakers and grantees. The tool aims to help grantmakers who find themselves processing huge amounts of applications from charities they are unlikely to support. For grantees, Beehive aims to mitigate time wasted on unsuccessful grant applications.
GrantNav is a free-to-use platform that brings together grant data published using the 360Giving Standard; making it easy to view and explore. The tool enables users to search and report in detail on who, where and how much is given through thousands of grants from a wide range of UK grantmakers, with further data being added as new publishers share their grants openly.
We use data visualisations to demonstrate how data can help us solve complicated questions. Our interactive Network Graph visualisation shows which grantmakers gave funding to the same organisation in 2016, using data published to the 360Giving Standard.
