Supporting organisations to publish their grants data openly is at the heart of what we do. We believe that sharing open grants data contributes to a more informed picture of UK grantmaking, in turn improving charitable giving for the communities and good causes that need it most.
To do this we created the 360Giving Data Standard, which enables grantmakers to share information on who, where and what they fund in a way that others can access and use for free.
Who can publish 360Giving data?
Any grantmaker can publish their data using the 360Giving Data Standard, including trusts and foundations, charities, lottery distributors, central and local government bodies, and any other publicly-funded bodies that make grants.
We define grantmakers as ‘any organisation that provides non-repayable funding in the form of a gift to charities, voluntary or community organisations, the wider civil society organisations and public sector’ or individuals.
Getting help to publish your grant data
We have a wide range of guides and support available to help your organisation to get started on publishing grants data in the first instance. For a quick introduction to the process, take a look at our blog, Getting started with our Complete Guide to Publishing.
For full and detailed guidance about each stage of the publishing process, please read our Complete Guide to Publishing. Or, if you’d like to find out more about the benefits of publishing grant data, please read our ‘Why publish’ page.
