It is now the norm for funders in the UK to publish data about their grants openly in the 360Giving Data Standard.
They are sharing information about their funding 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.
