In our Data Champions programme, grantmakers come together to collaborate and learn how to grow a data culture in their funding organisations.
Our 2019-2021 strategy – Unlocking the Power of Grants Data – focuses on helping funders to go beyond sharing data, to improving its quality and using it more in their day-to-day work.
