360Giving’s vision is for grantmaking in the UK to become more informed, effective and strategic.
What we do
Our mission is to help UK funders publish open, standardised grants data, and empower people to use it to improve charitable giving.
When funders publish information on who, where and what they fund in the 360Giving Data Standard it means they are sharing it in a way that others can access and use for free. Because the data is standardised, it can be looked at and compared all together, helping us to see and understand grantmaking across the UK. Having this information means funding can be more informed and effective.
We support people to publish their data in the 360Giving Data Standard. We also help people to access and use the data, and have created tools to make it easy to explore, download and visualise the data.
360Giving began in 2014 when the first steering group met. Since then we’ve developed as a charity, creating online free tools, providing services and supporting funders to publish their grants data, and to use that data. Learn more about:
