About us

We are a charity that helps organisations publish open, standardised grants data, and empower people to use it to improve charitable giving

About

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

What we do

Our aim is for more money to go to where it is needed most to support communities and good causes through a more informed understanding of the grantmaking picture.

Our mission is to help UK funders publish their grants data in an open, standardised way, and support people to understand and use this data to improve charitable giving.

We support funders to publish their data using the 360Giving Data Standard. This enables them to share information on who, where and what they fund in a way that others can access and use for free.

We also help people to access and use the data, and have created tools to make it easy to explore, download and visualise. Because the data is standardised, it can be looked at and analysed all together, helping us to see and understand grantmaking across the UK.

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:
