CGF UK joins the 360Giving open grants data initiative

The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch) has shared its grants data using 360Giving

The UK Branch of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation has joined the 360Giving initiative, which supports organisations to publish their grants data in an open, standardised way. The Foundation’s grants data can now be accessed via the 360Giving website.

360Giving was introduced with the aim of making UK grantmaking more informed, strategic and effective. It supports organisations to publish their grants data, to understand the data, and use it in ways that result in more impactful grantmaking. Since its launch in 2015 more than 60 UK grantmakers have joined the initiative, which is helping to build the bigger picture of UK grantmaking.

Through the GrantNav platform, visitors to the 360Giving website can search, filter and download across the datasets for free. All information is published to the 360Giving Standard, which means it has never been easier to compare and share grants data.

Any grantmaking organisation can publish to 360Giving, including charitable trusts and foundations; central and local government agencies; and other publicly-funded bodies that primarily make charitable grants.

The UK Branch of the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation is committed to transparency in grantmaking.  Find out more about our funded work here.
