360Giving’s vision is for UK grantmaking to become more informed, effective and strategic.

Our mission is to support UK grantmakers to publish information on who, where and what they fund in an open, standardised format to build a better picture of the funding landscape and boost its impact. We created the 360Giving Standard so funders can share and compare this information.

360Giving was set up in 2015 because our founder, Indigo Trust Director Fran Perrin, couldn’t find the information she needed to inform her own grantmaking decisions. Watch the video below and hear from Fran on her inspiration for 360Giving.
